Opelon - Stretch Jewellery Fibre - White
Opelon Stretch Jewellery Fibre is the perfect Elastic thread to use for your jewellery creations. As this is made of multiple fibres I find it holds knots much better than the shiny elastic thread.
The diameter of this cord is 0.7mm
It is best to secure using a surgeons knot which is done as follows:
Do the first part of a simple overhand knot but instead of taking your thread over once, do it twice in the first move. Then pull the knot so the beads touch. Now finish the knot by doing the second part of a simple overhand knot by looping over once more. Pull the knot tightly. To secure even more, hold the knot on either side and all tightly again. Trim any excess.
