Pearl Crystal Jewelry Bridal
Q: is it acceptable to loop the pearl/crystal into the
illusion cord rather than use crimps or glue - as in, I put the crystal on
the string, and then looped back through it and pulled tight and it doesn't
show.... or is this cheating in some sense???
A:Ok, so that might not be so great after all - they slide around pretty easily which is a good thing if you want to re-position the beads, but not so good if the bride messes up the beads and freaks out right before the wedding because her necklace is lopsided... and it doesn't look so invisible with the pearls - crystals, can't really tell, pearls, you can... Try using a tiny drop of glue on the illusion cord where you want the bead to stay, and then slide the bead onto the glue. You have to be careful not to use too much glue or it could smear. I'm trying to make some bridal jewelry - I have 2 girlfriends who are getting married and have requested some pretty baubles be made for them
