Q.
I want to make a stretchy bracelet. What size elastic cord should I get?

A.
The recommended size of elastic cord will vary depending upon the hole sizes of all the beads in your piece. Use a stringing material that will fit the smallest hole size. Use the description of your bead on our website to find the hole size. For example, if you are using the 8mm turquoise bead, if you go to the bead’s page, you will see it has a .5-1.5mm hole. For this bead I would recommend .5mm Powercord®. If you are pairing that bead with an 8mm mother of pearl bead with a .8mm hole use .5mm stringing material so it fits both.
