Use with suede or leather for a simple adjustable bracelet. Just thread the ends of the leather through the bead (it's easiest to do them one at a time), then knot the ends. When you pull the ends to make the bracelet smaller, the silicone will hold it's position!
Use to create a Y-style necklace or adjustable chain bracelet. These examples feature decorative pearls at the ends, which offer a design element as well as preventing the chain from pulling back through the stopper bead.
Use with other beads to hold them in place!
Use the bead with loop as a closure or focal feature. Very easy and effective necklace design.
