Topics: Accu-Flex®, Finishing

Can I glue accuflex? I have many not quite finished necklaces and previously have used crimp beads, but now am allergic to nickel and would like to finish long necklaces without "metal" or clasps and with glue. Thank you.

While almost any glue can be used with Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire, G-S Hypo cement or Loctite® 409 Gel work well and have fine-tip applicators. Accu-Flex beading wire is a great beading wire that is flexible and strong. Knot the ends, add the adhesive of your choice then slide the knot into a bead to hide it.
