InspirationFX: Handsome Ahoy

Get your creative juices flowing

Handsome Ahoy
by: Dwyn Tomlinson
Ahoy handsome and cast off for fabulous! Use this fabulous 10 mm round nylon cord to make bangles and bracelets, much like the Regaliz leather (but this is round in profile, instead of D-shaped.)

Simply cut to length, fuse the ends right away with a lighter - because this stuff frays like a s-o-b. Either wrap the end to be cut with tape and fuse, or hold tightly. Either way - a quick hit with a lighter or candle flame will make the ends fuse and become stable.

Slide on your beads, and the ends, dry fit first, then glue with our super new glue or a gel-type cyanoacrylate (crazy glue.)

Add the clasp with jumprings, and you are good to go!
