So, I finally learned how to bead crochet a rope and before it unravels, I want to finish it into a bracelet. I've made a beaded button for the clasp, but silly as it sounds, I don't know how to make a button-loop closure. Whenever I try, my loops are too big and don't secure the button.
Could y'all help me with how big does the loop needs to be compared to the button?
Also, if I add end caps to the rope, will I still be able to use a button loop closure?
One way to make a loop is to use a product like Gossamer Floss, doubling the strands. Make the loop about half the size of the button and it will stretch over the button with no problem. I use seed beads to cover the floss. Good luck with your project and hope you post it when finished.

Just giving a bump to get spammer off top of page.
Be sure to play with your beads today...they get lonely.

I don't think there is anything wrong with using the name of your store for your user name. Complaining about that is being "over-picky". It doesn't link to anything, so it's not like putting a link inside a post. The post itself wasn't spammy. And I have seen many other people do it through the years.

I agree with Cat the name is fine as far as I can see. As Cat says it doesn't link to anything. It is not any different then using your site in the signature line which is allowed.
