I remember saying back in the day that I would never use elastic thread on my jewelry designs, or in fact on my own jewelry pieces I would make for myself. I should have never said that. It’s a wonderful thing! Your bracelets slip on and off quickly and easily. In fact my best sellers are made using Stretch Magic elastic jewelry cord. I like the 1mm clear and use the Griffin beading needles in size medium. What’s great about the needles is you only need to buy 1 package and you can use them over and over again. Don’t get me wrong I still use toggles, lobster clasps and fish hook clasps. I love my Soft Flex Sterling Silver Wire Extreme. But in this busy time of my life with just opening a bead store, doing custom designs, repairs, filling my orders on etsy, I’m tired. I love waking up in the morning and just slipping on my bracelets. Anything that can not slow me down is a plus.
Tomorrow I will be teaching a class using the elastic thread. I will have people for the first time using elastic and I know that they will love it as much as I do. I’m excited to hear their input! Enjoy, Mary
