Clear Stretchy Cording
perfect as always!
I have bought this item before and am always very happy with it. A lower price would be nice, but it's convenient. I only get it here instead of $2 cheaper at the craft store because I would have to pay that much to go out to the craft store!

This was too thick for smaller beads. Tying a knot and hiding the knot was very difficult and impossible in some cases. It works very well with bigger beads.

I didnt' look at the size and accidently bought the thicker elastic, but it worked ok for the project and quality was fine. Nothing excited to write about here.

Worked really well for some children's necklaces and bracelets I made. I used a square knot to tie it off and pulled very tight. No problems with it staying tied! As another person also stated, it is a little pricey.

This cord is thick and stretchy, great for pony beads.

I purchased this so that the girls could make bracelets while their food was cooking at my daughter's cooking party and they worked well. You can easily tie it off to make your bracelets and they strech out just enough to fit after tying off. I would buy again!

I am planning to use this cording to make necklaces for my going-to-be 4 year old's party. I like that the cording is clear, so as not to distract from the colorful beads we are using, and it is stretchy, just like the description. However, my 2 1/2 yrs. old son got hold of his necklace and stretched it out with his feet and it did not return to it's normal size, but at the same time, did not stay stretched way out. I don't expect the 4 year olds and older children to be doing this, so I like this product and may use it for further projects for myself and kids. Good quality for the price.

A BIT SLIPPERY... AND HARD TO KNOT!
MY NURSERY CLASS (BABIES TO THREE YEAR OLDS) USED THIS CORDING TO STRING SIMPLE PLASTIC BEADS FOR NECKLACES, FOR THEIR MOMMY'S FOR MOTHER'S DAY (US TEACHERS HAD TO ACTUALLY PUT THE BEADS ON FOR THEM BECAUSE OF THEIR AGE). I LOVE THAT THE CORDING IS CLEAR, AND DIDN'T DISTRACT FROM THE COLORFUL BEADS. IT WAS A BIT HARD TO GET A REALLY GOOD KNOT THAT WOULDN'T KEEP COMING UNDONE (IT'S SLIPPERY), BUT WE FIGURED IT OUT!

This cord works very well with beads. I have purchased various craft kits from Oriental Trading Company, and sometimes, the cords and bracelets that come with the kits are too thick for the beads. This cord, however, is fine enough, yet strong and pliable, and it can be used as an excellent substitute.
