    I typically use 1mm elasticity, but I will try Elonga and also doubling the .5 elasticity! I also can’t wait to get my hands on one of those needles!

    I used stretchcord when I first started beading. But didn’t have a particular brand.

    It took me a while to feel comfortable working with Elonga but now I love it. I’m about to make a bunch of breast cancer bracelets for my friend who was just diagnosed with breast cancer. She and her twin sister will sell them to their friends to help cover her expenses while going through treatment.

    I make stretch bracelets but this technique was new to me. The needle was new. Would love to win some stretch cord.

    I really enjoyed this video. I have been looking for new stretch material because I have been using Gossamer floss for years.

    Some of my favorite bracelets to wear and make for sales are the stretchy variety. Easy, comfy and almost one size fits all. Keep up the fabulous work. I LOVE Artbeads.

    I have typically used Stretch Magic. I am going to try Beadalon’s Elasticity and Elonga to see the results I receive. I love stretch bracelets and want to use the best elastic that’s on the market.

    I like using stretch cord because I have big hands, but I have yet to learn to use it in looms to make wide stretchy bracelets. I enjoyed the presentation and would love to win this.
    thanks for the demos, they are very useful

    Looking forward to learning more about Beadalon brand products. I’m definitely sold on their beading needle, and will be purchasing one shortly. Your videos are great and I am getting excited to get back into beading.

    The first jewelry I made was on stretch cord. I love stretch cord bracelets because they are so easy to make and to wear. No clasp just on and off with ease.

    I used stretch cord once years ago and didn’t get great results, no doubt due to myself needing to spend more time on it! I am bad about giving up, and I would love to try it again, especially after the nice tutorial.

    I have never used either of those brands as of yet but would love to give them a try. I always cut a few extra inches of cord and stretch a few times prior to beading.

    Thanx for another great video!

    I haven’t tried stretchy cord in a long time, but didn’t have much luck when I did it years ago. I’d like to give it a whirl again.

    I love to use Elonga when making stretch bracelets. It’s strong, durable, now comes in great colors. I love how silky smooth it glides through beads and stones.

    Could you throw in one of those needles, too?!? LOL As much as I like the Dakota Stones, that needle would be wonderful to have for so many of my projects.

    Elasticity is my favorite stretch cord. It’s easy to use and lasts longer than any other stretch cord I’ve used. Thanks for the great tips to pre-stretch and use double surgeon knots. I often double just in case one cord breaks and will more often now, but will probably take more care to ream the bead holes since the cord used will be thinner.
    I have used Elonga but found that it breaks too often both during stringing and on completed projects. I also often use needles to string and Elonga often frays or breaks using both Collapsible Eye Needles and Big Eye Needles.

    I had not heard of Elonga, but am curious. I have made dozens of stretch bracelets for Summer for both women and little girls. I love making them and using different types of beads and charms.

    I like Elasticity type stretch cording. I’ve used stretch cord like Elonga before and I didn’t like it as much. I always forget to pre-stretch the cord, maybe after this video I’ll remember! 😉 As always, great video!

    I usually use 1mm Elasticity style stretch cord. I love wearing stretch cord bracelets, I can wear them all day and not worry about getting them wet from washing hands or doing housework. Who says you can’t feel glamorous and get your chores done at the same time ?!😊

    I enjoy how quick and easy it is to make a bracelet using elastic cord. I have made several but definitely want to make more. I like the elasticity type of stretch cord more than the elonga which I have tried and didn’t find as enjoyable to use. I usually use the .5 mm elasticity like cord, I have been doubling the cord on some of my bracelets also. I like it when Wyatt White is on Artbeads videos, they are so fun to watch!!!

    Would love to try the Elonga cord. I have made many with elasticity type of cord. It’s always been my go to for this type of bracelet. So easy to put on and take off.

    I’ve tried stretch cord that was available in a local dept. store but was not overly impressed. After watching this I want to try some of the Elonga stretch cord and I want one of those needles. the colorful beads used in the video are beautiful. The will make a lovely summer bracelet.
