Stretchy Bracelets - Has Anyone Used Fabric Covered Elastic Instead of Stretch Magic?  - Discussion on Jewelry Making Journal

For many years I have been making beaded bracelets on elastic cord, using Stretch Magic.

Since I have moved to Florida, I have noticed that the elastic cording turns yellow and stretches out, even on bracelets that have not been worn.

This is happening to the bracelets a couple of months after they were made.

I was wondering if anyone had used the fabric covered elastic that Beadalon makes for bracelets and what kind of success they had with breakage, knot tying, and stretching?
