I have to admit I find working with stretchy material hard. I’ve never had the confidence that my knot will hold, so I only make them for myself. You could try putting some glue on the knot. I think I’ve heard of this being helpful.
You might consider trying a memory wire bracelet instead, I think it’s easier to work with. Once you have a tiny loop at one end it is easy to string as many wraps around your wrist as you like. And the tiny loops at each end hold the beads in place for good. The memory wire is REALLY hard. Then just throw a little charm on the end. Very cute.

Hi Zenmum,

Tonight, Friday night became a rainy night with lightening so we stayed home.
Decided to try making a bracelet, using beads from sisters’ bracelet that broke.
Well 2 hrs later, still not done, referred to some you- tube videos, and decided on doing a double strand method video , but when I was ready to tie off, couldn’t find the video; I recalled the lady from U.K. tied tiny knot and stretched five times, plus couple more ties.
When I tried to measure in my wrist, the beads fell off,beads fell to the kitchen floor three times!!, with sound of beads rolling on the floor, my husband with a flashlight helping me, I was laughing when he said, “ I see the shiny bead, then no, that’s a grain of salt!” In the end, placed my work in a ziplock back, retry this another day, won’t be home Saturday.

There are a couple of us that are active here almost daily. Always happy to have someone new. I make mostly necklaces. But I have what I call crafting ADD. There is always something new and cool to try.

Hello, are you currently active in SparkPeople?

I recently purchased supplies to make necklaces, new, pretty color beads, choose stretchy elastic or cord, ( thinking good for bracelets), but want to do necklace.
Watched you-tube how-to’s. Plan to start soon.

emoticon I live in So. Calif and I am from Illinois. I am a senior, live alone with my 2 cats King Tut and Cleopatra. I love to make jewelry and I do craft boutiques. I love to meet new people and show off my work. I have been using bee wast in my pendents that I make for necklaces. Pricey, but so pretty.

Welcome to the group, I am originally from Northern Illinois and now living in Arkansas. It is a total life change to live in the south from living in the North. Glad you are back, I just recently decided to be more active again myself. We are here for you.

Tina

I will not allow the tragedies in my life to become a negative influence in the world.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
