The most commonly used cord is leather & the most commonly used thread is Fireline for these popular wrap bracelets.
Single Wrap (7.5"): You'll need 30 inches of cord & 7-8 feet of thread.
2 Wraps (15"): You'll need 45 inches of cord & 14-16 feet of thread.
3 Wraps (22.5"): You'll need 60 inches of cord & 21-24 feet of thread.
4 Wraps (30"): You'll need 75 inches of cord & 28-32 feet of thread.

Have you ever made a bracelet for someone that is just a little too short or too long for the wearer and you have to remake the whole thing? Seriously...no fun!
Making the bracelet with "built in" extension abilities is the simple answer to this dilemma, and couldn't be easier!
Just add a few links of chain before adding the clasp & at the end of
the bracelet. Add a dangle for a great finishing touch!
Voila! You have instant success and everyone thinks you are a genius!

ALUMINUM SORTING TRAYS
Pick up, sort, and pour beads. The triangular shape & angled edges allow you to use these trays as clever little bead scoops to chase down errant beads. Sort your beads into different trays while you’re working. When you’re ready to put your beads away, pour them directly from any corner into small bags, tubes or compartments. These trays nest, so they are easy to pack along for beading on the go. Bright aluminum lets you see your beads clearly. And they are super affordable!!
If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then is an empty desk a sign?”
My answer would be… “An empty mind”?
I think Einstein was on to something when he said that.
I always have at least a dozen projects going at the same time.
When I run out of room on my bead boards, I start staking them!!
Is that insane?
When the stacked bead boards start to tilt, I spread out to the dining room table, the living room and then even my bedroom! When does it stop! (My husband stops it at the bedroom!!)
When I run out of storage bags for my UFO’s (UnFinished Projects) it’s a sure sign to start finishing my projects!
