Has anyone made I-cord with wire? If so, what kind and what gauge?
Has anyone made I-cord with yarn strung with beads (like seed beads)?
How did you do this?
Please post details.

Nope, it's on my "someday" list, but

Yes, this I have done. I used a loosely knit, fine wool i-cord and
wooden beads with large holes. The end of the i-cord was closed
drawstring fashion using a tapestry needle. I threaded beads inside the
tube by opening the drawstring end, outside by closing it. I alternated
inside beads with outside beads and placed an overhand knot in the cord
after each bead. Made a very nice, lightweight necklace, vaguely
reminiscent of the late 60's-early '70's. With glitzier yarns and
beads, it might not look so "earthy." BTW the i-cord was made on a
hobby-knit cord knitter, not by hand.
... If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy?
