maybe not enough beads...

CherryCubert 10/7/2020 12:58 am 763

i ordered my first beads off of aliexpress and they should arrive this month but its just 1000 random coloured beads... oh- and plus my 200 letter beads that are also coming withhhhh.

is 1000 beads enough to make lots of kandi (including lots of cuffs) because the more i look at these patterns the more i realise how many beads id need..

can someone give me some advice???

alsoooooo for people who live in australia, are there any places i can buy heaps of beads for cheap.. like at an actual shop?

thats a pret good amount 2 get u started!! usually liek a regular kandi bracelet will be 28-34 beads depending on size and then jus multiply that by how many layers ur cuff is. usually 4 me when i make a cuff i use around 150 beads but it can be as little as 90. so liek ya 1000 is def a good number 2 start.

also i don live in australia but i get most my beads from michaels so if they have michaels in australia then i suggest there big grin

I think you can do quite a few. Im new aswell and have made a mask with under 1000 along with a few cuffs(in conjunction with other packs) my largest cuff has 16 rows + 38 around so around 608 beads
