If my bracelet broke, can I restring it?

Yes, you can.

There are the following steps to re-string the bracelet

  • 1. The first step is finding the right elastic cord for your bracelet. You need some of stretchy elastic cord. It is recommended that the color of the elastic cord be similar to the color of the beads.
  • 2. Cut a piece of cord the size of your bracelet, plus leave yourself at least three inches of elastic on each side to tie your knots and you can use the wire clippers are not the sharpest for this but they work or you can use scissors.
  • 3. String your beads on the elastic while it is on the spool, and use a bead stopper to avoid having the beads slip off the cord. Pre-stretch your cord by pulling on each end before stringing. This is a really important step.
  • 4. One key to successful results is to use a surgeon's knot to tie the elastic. The surgeon's knot is the most reliable knot for elastic bracelets. A surgeon's knot is a square knot (also known as a reef knot) with an extra loop through. The extra loop helps keep the knot from slipping. You can add an extra half knot on top of the surgeon's knot just in case.
  • 5. After cutting the elastic cord, add a dab of glue to the knot. If possible, cover your knot. This makes your elastic bracelet look nicer, but also protects the knot from wear caused by rubbing between two beads.
