Topics: Correct Powercord® Diameter with Swarovski crystal and pearls

Q.
What weight of Powercord is best to use when making stretch bracelets using 6mm Swarovski crystals and 4mm glass pearls?
- Carolyn
A.
Both of those beads have a hole approximately 1mm in diameter, so your best option is the 0.8mm diameter Powercord. If you are choosing to knot the Powercord on the bracelets, don't forget to add a drop of G-S Hypo Cement to keep the knot secure.

Please remember that Swarovski crystals have sharp edges that can, over time, wear through the cord and weaken it. You may find that a beading wire such as Accu-Flex® beading wire with a clasp is a better long term option.
