  • Finally, the secret's out: you can churn out large quantities of stretchy bracelets and anklets - fast.
  • How do those other jewelry makers do it? How do they sell stretchy bracelets so cheap, when it's such a pain to poke that clear stretchy cord through each bead one by one?
  • Well, here's the secret. You Need TWO THINGS: First, you need the right kind of needle, called The Big Eye Needle (see our Jewelry Making Supplies).
  • Second, you need THIS FIBROUS STRETCH CORD! This cord has several advantages over that clear stretch cord; (1) it doesn't get longer and lose elasticity with wear, (2) it is more stretchy (hey, it's pure Lycra Spandex!), so it's ideal for making anklets that are small enough for an ankle, but can easily be stretched big enough to glide over a foot; and (3) it can be put through the right kind of needle! Oh, and (4) it can be knotted, and the knots will be small enough to hide inside a 4mm bead.
  • Quantity: 25 meters (just over 82 feet unstretched.) Measurement: Approximately .7mm unstretched. Stretches thinner.

Instructions for use:
This cord is not suitable for very heavy beads, nor should it be used with beads with sharp or abrasive surfaces, such as some ceramic or metal beads. We have used it without any problems with metal spacers and glass beads up to 8mm. Do not use this thread with beads whose holes are so small that the needle must be forced, such as small pearls. Knot this cord to finish your bracelets, do not use crimp beads, as they will fray the cord.

Product is great but you don’t get very much.


One of the items
I ordered
Was NOT what you showed on on the
Project YouTube channel. I ordered the beading needle that you used for stretch bracelets. Instead you send Me this Thing that is 10" long with a
Circle on the end. And
Very stiff steel.


All good


Terrible quality! I contacted support regarding this stretch bead and they kindly sent out a replacement. Received the replacement and the stretch cord literally shreds apart. This is supposed to be a best-seller. Bottom line is that I’m unable to use it.

Excellent for stretch bracelets

I use this thread for making stretch bracelets, and I'm very happy with it. It holds up well and I've had no problems with breaking or fraying. I'll continue to use this product.
