  1. Well, i don't wear bracelets, but i do fish a lot. Looks like u might be an expert at tying some popular fishing knots…i like ur video tho.

  2. Thank you so much!!! I've been saving a stretchy bracelet for almost a decade now and was almost gonna throw it away today! Thanks a lot!!!

  3. I have crystal bracelets that is coming loose…but will that method work on crystal bracelets as the holes are kinda small to fit if i don't cut away the old cord.

  4. Question: First, I know NOTHING about jewelry making, but how can I make a stretch elastic bracelet larger? Can I add a magnetic clasp?
