These simple bracelets are very easy to make. We used our economy stretchy thread, TH1418. This is very cheap at 75p for 9m and almost as good to work with as the branded stretch threads. We also used our silver star beads, again very economical at just 1.25 per pack of 30. Ref. AC4852. A good tip is to tie the knot then pull it from both ends until the knot tightens up on itself. Some people like to put a small dab of glue on the knot too. I prefer an extra knot to finish, then hide it inside the beads if possible.
