I used to struggle with this but it was only because I wasn’t clamping done hard enough. The plyers on McKenzie sells helped a lot too
Yes. I stopped using them about 10 months ago because of it. I buy through a guy on Instagram now. 1000 silicone, Nichol free beads for roughly $20 (after the shopping and PayPal fees)
Do they have a silicone lining now?
Claire have you been using the ones that are silicone-lined?
Yes I have. I’ve used other brands with silicone lining and never had an issue. So this is a bummer!
Aren’t silicone beads recommended? I had a few slip. But only recently.
Is it just your front beads slipping? I had front beads slip until I watched the new videos and saw how she did the end beads. In the old videos, when she said go behind the bead I literally thought she ment behind it not behind as in to the side of the bead. I also noticed how she stitched the end beads was a little different too with going through the loop from the top instead of from the bottom. I hope that helps!
