Elastic cording is simple to use because special tools and findings are not required. All you need to do is tie a knot and trim the excess. Stretch cord and elastic is perfect for stringing all types of beads including glass beads, plastic beads, pony beads, alphabet beads, number beads, metal beads and other types of beads and charms. Be sure to choose string that will fit through the beads that you have chosen. If you have any questions about what type of stringing material to use or how much you need, please give us a call.

Depending on the type of project that you are working on, there are several options of stringing materials. Consider the type of bead and the hole size of the beads. If you would like to use thick elastic, thick cotton cord, or thick leather or suede, choose beads that will have big enough holes such as alphabet cube beads, pony beads and other types of plastic beads that have large enough holes. If you choose beads with smaller holes, the options of stringing materials include gossamer stretch cord and flexible beading wire.

To make stretch bracelets, use some type of stretchy stringing material. For key chains, use plastic lacing, cotton cord, leather or suede - just make sure that the bead holes are large enough. To create key chains with alphabet beads that hang down, use alphabet beads with vertical holes. Name bracelets can be made with plastic alphabet beads or pewter alphabet beads strung on gossamer stretch cord or flexible beading wire.
