"BagelTheOtaku": I usually only use pony beads. And just a tip from experience ._. dont mix different brands of pony beads. Some brands are differently shaped and and if you mix them the cuff will come out crappy. (added pic, the black in the pokeball cuff are smaller cause that part of the cuff to be tighter together than the red and white) Oh yes I know XD It annoys me to no point when that happens, which is why I only use one brand (:

I like to experiment. Mostly I use pony beads... but I love the way it looks to have one or two of those unique ones with different beads that stand out ^_^

it all depends. i love the look of pony beads but also mix in stars, hearts, skulls, buttons n other cool ones. even in masks i like mixing letters n write messages, names n stuff in them. also lately i've started using crimping beads. those are more for knotting and keeping it tight so they don't bust. long story short i worked on a huge x base cuff when i got the end i tied it off n tried it on n it busted the crimp beads reinforce the knots.

I only use pony beads, but that's because I'm new to making kandi. When I get comfortable with everything, I'll eventually experiment with different beads, though; I love how unique kandi looks!

I love using different beads. I also like bringing different stringing material in the mix. Instead of some sort of stretch cord, I like using yarn and crochet the beads on, there's leather cord, hemp, and I've made my own cord with embroidery floss and a kumihimo disk.
