I need tips on what kind of string, beads, and charms are the best and where I can find them :<

@Jschlatt_Kinnie: I might be able to help with the charm thing! I thought I didn't have any charms until I started looking around my room. If you haven't gotten rid of your old toys or if you know someone who plays with toys, there's a chance there will be little ones. You can order little circle rings with a screw part on the end (I'm not sure what the are called) and you can screw them into almost any small toy and then hook a chain through it or put string through it. Also if you do take this advice and you want to put those screw things into plastic or similar hard materials, I take a needle and hold the tip over fire and push it through where I want the screw to be. It will melt the plastic only enough to make a small hole. I hope this helps!

The type of string you use is very important! For singles and smaller cuffs, I like to use braided chord bc it's stretchy and stronger than normal elastic. For cuffs and charms i use crystal string or fishing line to keep its shape ;3

I was able to get a nice starter box with 2300 for $12 at Hobby Lobby, Michael's can get a little expensive so I'd say only shop there when you can't find it anywhere else. You can also get more specific beads on beadtin.com in bulk. The best thread that people recommend is this white elastic cord: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GPTDB6/ref=p... It's really strong and ties nicely instead of that shitty clear stretch magic stuff, and this roll in particular gives you a lot I just got mine in the mail yesterday and it works great. Also, 0.7 and 0.8mm are generally the ideal thickness you'd want to get, otherwise it's too weak or too hard to tie. I'm not really sure about charms but I assume anything you can get that's of decent quality will be fine.
