I dont know much about jewelry making but I want to make a prayer bracelet for a dear friends baby shower.
I went to the craft store & I cant tell which string stretches & which does not.. I do NOT want my string to stretch.. Or what bends well for a bracelet or what is too rigid..
Fishing line looks like what I want. But I do not want to use it because I know it will stretch...
Im using 8mm Gemstone Beads, a crimp tube & toggle clasp & adding a small cross charm.. And after watching a few videos I may go to the store and get some jump rings..
Any advice about the type of string I should be using would be awesome. I want something that wont stretch but has a nice natural drape to it..
Also input about putting jump rings? I made a "mock" bracelet today with just a crimp tube & toggle clasp & it looked good.. Does jump rings really finish it off ??
Thank You for the advice! :) Getting this to look right & last is very important!! Id hate to give my bff something and it break or wear out quickly.
