I saw a bracelet on facebook--a stretchy one, that was really cute, but it was 30.00. It had lava beads on it, and a skull bead. I have the exact skull beads here at home, but not lava beads. All my beads are made of stone and glass, but I feel my bracelets could be made to look even better! However, I'm not schooled on making stretchy bracelets, or the weight of lava beads.

So. Can stretchy bracelets be made with heavier beads, like glass and stone? If so, what do I buy as "wire" for that? how does one attach the ends? Tie in a certain way, or what exactly? I'll try to find a tutorial as well.

I admit this is the first time I've seen a stretchy bracelet pass off as relatively good quality (some are really pretty, but you can tell they are very plastic and not all that great, and never seem to be worth very much).

thanks for any advice you can give me! :)
