This is a wonderful adhesive for bead work. It is great for small areas & hard to reach areas. The only downside is that as I get older, it is very hard to recap the darn stuff! Otherwise I love it!

Just like all the other reviewers mentioned, this glue works! It dries quickly, and even though I have accidently glued my beads together, I'm able to unstick them with no problem. I use genuine gemstones, so I don't know how difficult it would be to unstick crystals or glass beads.

This glue is great for everything. I love that it has a needle like head so that I can put glue on tiny spots and my knots. I have been using it for years and trust it to hold my stuff together- and last.

I love the G-S Hypo cement. I use it for just about everything I do. The sharp, hypo type tip makes it so easy to apply glue into small spaces.

This is the answer to your stretchy bracelets that come undone. Add a drop to your knot & tuck the knot in a bead. Let it dry & no more worrying that your bracelet will come apart!

Gets the Job Done!
Great product, however I found that it does take some time to dry and sometimes it can get stringy, but no big deal. Other than that, it gets the job done and it is easy to apply with the fine applicator. I normally don't have an issue after it dries.

The best adhesive I've found yet!
GS Hypo Cement is the perfect adhesive I've found to date! I use it to end my wrapped bracelets with and secure the first bead in those items as well as many other applications. I especially like the extremely fine needle nose applicator on the tube to inject the clear drying cement right into beads with no gunking up or having to remove an applicator nose. Will continue to purchase this product!

Versatile Uses for G-S Hypo Cement
I love this glue for many reasons. I am currently creating wire wrapped rings, and some of my bead holes are a little too large. After completing the ring I slip it snuggly on Auntie's Bead mandrel, and insert a smaller guage of wire in the hole to fill the space and for the cement to grap on to - then squeeze the cement into the hole. I let it set over night on the mandrel,and by morning my ring is set and ready to wear! I use to work at a dentist office which gave me this idea!:)

This glue is great when securing beads to hoops and securing elastic bracelets. Don't like when putting the pin back into the small hole when the glue is still coming out. That is a task!

This is the first time a have ordered this cement and it is great.I like that it doesn't stick to my fingers and is easy to apply directly where I want it.

My order came right away! And was perfect for the project we were working on.its very strong and flexible and holds the knot in place great! Only thing is that the glue leaks out everywhere when not capped right away, which slows down the production time because we have to top it up between glueing each bracelet. If you dont have large orders to fill... this product this amazing.

Great Glue but not like design
Great for its purpose but it is a really difficult task to put tiny pin in to close while the glue still oozes out continually.

This stuff works like a charm when gluing handmade coil crimps onto the ends of suede and leather necklaces. Only one tiny drawback -- I need a magnifying glass to place the pin back into the tube, but I also need new prescription on my glasses, so not everyone is going to have this problem. :)

Make sure you have a few on hand.
I love using this hypo-cement and find it difficult to find at the local hobby shops. I mostly order them at AB. It bonds well, even with Elastoma Cord. I just wish it was easier to place the cap back on after use. Also, as you squeeze the container, it sometimes cracks and the cement comes out of the container before it reaches the tip. Wish these two issues would be addressed by the maker of the product.

Questions and Answers
Q:GS Hypo Cement - does it bond to leather cord or strap leather? Many adhesives I use either harden the silk string and cord or end up looking clumpy even tho waterproof, still seem to clump. I make wrap bracelets.
A: G-S Hypo Cement goes on very clear and won't clump, however, for leather, we recommend using Zap-A-Gap Quick Drying Adhesive.

A: Generally, Hypo Cement is used to hold knots in materials such as elastic and monofilament cording like Supplemax. I would not expose it to high heat. I take rings off when I wash my hands if I know that I am wearing a piece that is held together with Hypo Cement, just to be on the safe side.
