Best Adhesives for this Project
Poly Zap by Pacer

Poly Zap by Pacer for 1st Step -
This super glue designed for specialty plastics is perfect for nylon cords, but be careful if using this product next to beads as it may discolor them or leave a milky film. It dries quickly as most super glues.

Always wipe the top of the bottle before replacing the cap, store it upright, and pierce the top with a thin needle if the flow is restricted. This product has a limited shelf life of about a year. Keep it upright in the fridge to extend its shelf life.

1/2 oz./14.2 g. #ADH-PZ

 
Zap Jewelry by Pacer for Beadsmith

Jewelry Gel for 2nd Step
Extra Thick Formula - No runs, no drips.
Recommended for securing clasp to cords and for kumihimo findings.

Personal note - I have tested it. It works well to attach cords to metal findings. For cord ends, I prefer Poly-Zap for the 1st step (gluing the cord ends together), but I like this adhesive for the second step (attaching the glued cord ends to the finding). As to its lasting quality, it will need to be tested over time but so far so good and all Pacer products seem to be of good quality!

1/2 oz./14.2 g. #ADH-GEL

Needles for the Bead Sleeves
Bead Embroidery Needles

Package of 4 needles. Blunt ends. 2 size 10, 2 size 12. Designed for bead embroidery, so shorter than the standard English bead needles. Works well with Peyote Stitch and all the beading thread.

Personal note - I prefer blunt ends over the regular beading needles. The blunt ends lower the likelihood of splitting the thread when going through the beads multiple times, plus they are short and length is not needed for Peyote!

Thread Burners
Bead Embroidery Needles

A thread burners are great tools for finishing thread ends and cords. For this project, it is the best tool to end the thread for the Peyote Sleeves.
