Karla, The Fray Check sounds like an interesting idea.I would try it
first with some junk pearls though.Let us know how it goes.
The watch crystal cement is pretty messy at times.I keep a nasty
towel on my table to wipe the end off. That way, I can clean it off
with one hand. I also bring the thread through the next bead before I
apply the glue so that you don’t need both hands to keep the tension
on the knot. You just have to be careful not to get the glue on the
beads. Good Luck, Susan Hoge
