    Great video. I love multi-strand bracelets. I like the mixed media multi-strand necklace. It’s like layering necklaces without getting the clasps all tangled up.
    You carry the prettiest clasps.

    I’m new to multi strands techniques, and am very much a beginner in many techniques. I love trying new methods and your Instructions and Supply lists have allowed me to learn several techniques. I love your site and consider your classes like my own personal class! People have even asked me to make several pieces for them! I think this is the highest complement to what I have learned from Artbeads! Love, Love, Love Artbeads!

    Fire Polish are my absolute favourite beads to use for my bracelets and earrings along with other media. Always look to Artbeads for inspiration.

    Beautiful necklaces! I love both of them. Thanks for the tips. I will have to make both of them, I have a black onyx three strand clasps, and was trying to decide what to make with it. I have had it for a while. Great job ladies, as always.

    I most often use Czech glass in bracelets. I also use Czech glass in necklaces.

    I love the look for fire polished beads and use them a lot. You just reminded me of a 2-strand pearl and amazonite necklace I “almost finished” a few years ago, and will dig it out and change it according to your videos. I just could not get it to sit perfectly way back in the beginning, lol. Thanks ladies!!

    Finding inspiration is an important part of the creative process. I think it’s important for designers and crafters to share tips and information — it makes us all better designers in the end. Many thanks to Cynthia and Artbeads for sharing basic tips and techniques and helping to inspire us. I’m so glad I found them!

    Blog comment: for Giveaway entry. I use Czech beads for almost everything; from earrings, keychain to buckskin bags. I am Native American and bead with Czech beads almost every day!

    I usually use fire polished within wrap bracelets. They are so versatile! For my next project, I plan to include them for a multi strand necklace. 💛✨😊

    Use Czech glass beads in necklaces and bracelets mixed with gemstones. Like to use the small Czech beads as spacers. Also, like to make simple drop earrings with the glass beads.

    I have done multi strand projects in the past. It is always important to get the bead counts correct so it will lay properly. These projects lay just right.

    I’m interested in learning more about Toho beads. I’ve noticed on a few patterns I’ve purchased that Toho beads are preferred. What is the preference based on? To what size and brand would Toho beads most closely relate?

      Hi, Mary! TOHO offers wonderful Japanese seed beads for all kinds of projects. They are very consistent in size, shape, and color, especially the TOHO Aiko precision cylinder seed beads. TOHO Treasure beads are similar to Miyuki Delicas – they both have a cylinder shape that are fun to stitch with. You can take a look at all of the different TOHO shapes we offer here: https://www.artbeads.com/toho-beads-shop-by-bead-type/ This blog post also has more info about TOHO Aiko beads and a comparison of different TOHO shapes: https://blog.artbeads.com/2018/08/introducing-aiko-precision-cylinder-seed-beads-tohos-perfect-bead/ I hope this is helpful!

    Thank you for yet another great Artbeads Cafe. Great tips to help us all out. I think ya’ll covered it pretty well & I don’t have too much to add except to say that w/some of my multistrands, I like to make them interchangeable. For example, I might use a main or single strand that attaches in the back but on the front end of the single strand place an adequately sized hoop/ring where I can add different strands/chains etc. I make a selection of strands w/clasps on both ends that can attach to the loop on both sides of the single strand thus making it interchangeable. Goodness…I hope that made sense. Thank you for the opportunity w/the giveaway 🙂 .
