Yesterday I was sitting at the Master Food Preservers' Booth at the fair, when the bracelet I was wearing broke. It was strung with elastic beading cord (don't remember the brand). I made a couple of bracelets to wear and test to see how the elastic cord holds up. And well, this is a big fail!
I'm glad I was test wearing before just jumping into selling elastic bracelets. Selling something like this and having it fall apart would plainly suck! I'm not sure what I did wrong. I tied a square knot and added a touch of glue.
I have one that I was ready to finish off, but now I'm going to have to figure something else to do with it.
I'm bummed about it. I really like the continuous look with no clasp. And they are comfy and fun to wear.
Not sure if I didn't tie it correctly or didn't glue properly, but, well, dang.
