I have some rhinestone bracelets that have elastic running through the insides. The elastic has stretched and I have been unable to take the bracelets apart to somehow restring the elastic inside. How can I either undo the rhinestones (I can't bend them apart or pull them apart either, the metal tab attaching each one wiggles, but won't separate) or what do I use to string new elastic inside? Are these bracelets fixable? Thank you.
I've been making stretchy watches and using 1mm elastic string by Craft Designer. It loses its elasticity and even breaks after a fairly short period of time. Not good for return clients. There is a much stronger elastic available, somewhere--I know this because someone I know used it on a watch they gave to me. It has lasted over two years and is still together. Can you tell me what is best for this and your favorite glue to use for the knots? Thank you so very much!
Well, I just started practicing with tubular peyote, I didn't have thread, only elastic cord. I ended up making a bracelet I really like, and I was wondering how long my piece might last? I strengthened the stitching greatly, but I've never seen any videos or tutorials or anything on this site saying to use elastic.I have thread coming now, (thanks =D) but I kind of like the tightness the elastic offers, is it a bad idea to use this instead of thread?
