Another thing that could help is a beading needle, especially if the problem is due to soft or flimsy cord material. You can get them at bead stores and probably the big craft stores (Hobby Lobby, Michael's, etc.). The beading needle *won't* help with your problem if one ply of the cord just barely fits through the bead holes, because the cord material will be doubled at the eye of the beading needle.

IMO, the bead reamer is probably the riskiest way to go, as not all bead holes can easily be made larger without breaking beads. If you have more than a few extra beads it may be worth a try though.

Good luck with your project!
