What is the best way to put on a bead? Sounds like a stupid question but I'm wonderin how it stays n if I should get it wet first or put rubberbands below it..? What's the plan?

I just put mine in where they fit and stayed. If it's a tight fit then you could keep them in forever :)If you don't want them forever then move them around every once in a while or you'll get bumps above and/or below

nio rubber bands wet the tip of the dread put a loop of thread thru the bead put dread tip through loop use thread to pull dread tip thru bead push bead up till it sticks if it goes clear to roots try a thicker dreadthe bead should just find a home a spot where it just wants to live it will just fit right and stay in place

just find a bead that fits nicely, doesn't easily slip off, and slide it on, peyote stitches work really well,I wouldn't use anything else to keep em in unless you really really liked the way it looked.
