Hi Everyone!  I hope I'm posting this in the right spot... I'm new to beading.  I'm working on a Swarovski Crystal Bracelet and I just had a couple questions.  I'm going to post the link for the bracelet I'm doing so you all know what I'm talking about.  http://bead-tutorial.livejournal.com/16688.html

1.  This bracelet is one sided - the back is not pretty.  My question is... do bracelets turn while on the wrist or would the pretty side stay in place?

2.  Usually I've been going back through my crystal bracelets again with the beading thread to make it more secure (but my designs have been really simple thus far).  Would it be a mistake to do it with this bracelet because it doesn't sit flat (so if my first strand broke, the other would warp the bracelet anyway, wouldn't it?)

I hope I've made sense.  Thanks in advance!  Smile

RobynMorrison:

This looks like a sturdy construction to me. I would say that the bracelet would spin around the wrist rather than twist front to back. kwim? I think it would stay right side up. But I've never done this pattern so this is just a guess.

I've never used this type of nylon thread so I can't really say how it would affect the design to go back through it. But maybe someone who has used this type of beading thread will be able to give you advice on that.

BTW: If you post something like this question in the "How Do I" forum you may get more responses as that is where most people look first.
