  • Beads: Anything goes, but do make sure the jewelry beads you use are not too heavy or sharp for the elastic.
  • Elastic: Jewellery making elastic and elasticity come in various thicknesses and colors, l usually find the 0.8mm thick elasticity in clear or black is suitable for most projects.Elasticity is a soft and flexible bead cord which resembles nylon but stretches like elastic. It has a limber nature which makes it ideal for bracelets especially when using beads with a small hole.
  • Glue: I usually use super glue or clear nail varnish, both work well.


  1. Take one piece of wrist length elasticity and add your beads.
  2. Tie the elasticity together at the ends in a couple of reasonably tight knots.
  3. Now glue the knot for additional security and that’s it.
