Beading & Jewelry Stringing Choices

By Ethan O. Tanner

There are numerous topics regarding the options of stringing textile for beadwork. Here follows an interesting report regarding the various stringing textiles and their use. One really significant lesson I acquired is that there's no one, general (comprehensive) stringing textile. Here are the leading stringing textiles along with how and when to use each of them.

Silk has a marvellous "hand" (a delicate, flexible feeling). This thread comes in several sizings and colorings. It comes prepackaged upon spools, and "carded" with an attached needle. This is a standard stringing textile and forms attractive knots between pearls and beads. Only, silk is given to be comparatively delicate. It can stretch out, be cut off by rough beads, decompose once wet, and pearls threaded on silk ought to be re strung every a couple of years. It's best to apply silk when stringing pearls and light, smooth-holed beads, only. A needle is essential.

Nylon string as well comes in numerous sizings and colorings. It comes prepackaged upon spools, upon bobbins, and "carded" with a needle attached. Nylon may be employed where-ever silk can and isn't as delicate. This textile knots attractively and can be employed for pearl threading, in a few strung up jewelry, seed beading, loom weaving, for Peyote and additional special stitches, and coral beads.

Nylon puts out a lot less than silk, and it won't disintegrate when wet. Like silk, you shouldn't utilize beadings with sharp edged holes or that are weighty. While using nylon thread, I would advocate you cake your strand with bee's wax or "Thread Heaven TM "before using to maintain it from fraying. A needle is all-important.

Bonded nylon is a a great deal stronger form of nylon string. The strings are physically attached together for added strength and abrasion protection. Altho it knots easily, it does not possess the "feel" of silk.

Attached nylon comes in an variety of colors and smaller size reels. Attributable to its abrasion opposition, you can utilise it with "demanding", harsher stone beads; this comes close to being an "comprehensive Thread". Brand names** include: "Stringth" or "Silkon". A needle is necessary, tho' you can put "Super Glue" on the end to arrive at a "Self-needle". This is a preferable beading material of mine.

Fishing Line is a strong, semi-rigid, single twine of plastic. It does not knot easy, and sooner or later sunshine or ultraviolet light might cause it to break and fall apart. Fishing line is purchased on smaller spools and is sold in sporting goods shops.

Personally, I employ fishing line for two reasons. I employ it to do my preliminary threading while I'm designing a necklace (I change the beads to a better textile for the final product), and to string together "raw" strings of beads. There's no needle requirement. I would never employ this textile for a final beaded piece. - 31809

Bead Stringing-Making your First Necklace

By Jim Hudson

Beading as a craft has pleased many people over the years. Whether building a necklace or working with a loom, beads have played a part for a long time. Let's take a look at tips to help you select your first project.

I would look on the net for crow beads to start. These are larger beads and usually with a larger hole to add the string. This is a common beading method that will make something that looks good and gives a sense of satisfaction in a short amount of time. You can make and wear the finished product in the same day. Materials list is simple, artificial sinew or waxed thread, and crow beads. I would say that the beads of the Czech variety or even French crow beads will yield a good looking product.

I usually double up my thread if possible to make for a strong cord to string the beads on. A needle is not usually needed to string the beads, but I have used a doll needle for stringing beads for sale. I use a long platter style bowl to dump the beads in when I string crow beads for sale, and you can use the same method to string them for wearing. Crow beads are usually sold by the string 100 beads to a string for about $3.00 to $4.00 each. This is a good price range to find the needed colors you are looking for. I used to sell standard opaque and transparent crow beads for this price. If you want something called a whiteheart, then the price will be slightly higher. About $5.00 to $7.00 a string.

Like I have mentioned, you will need about 150 beads per string for wearing. Also consider using tube beads and metal beads that may be made of brass for the really nice look. Consider also that you may want to use center bead to accent the overall look. Some use a chevron bead as the center. Original chevrons command a high price, reproduction chevrons are usually much more affordable

So to recap. Look for Czech and French crow beads. Try India glass beads for reproduction chevrons, they make a nice bead at not much money. The India glass dealers also have selections of crow beads. You have to look for the different types they offer. Look for a heavy beading cord or artificial sinew, this has many uses. There are many dealers on the net that offer a nice catalog. I would look for those that do, you will be able to shop from your home and either order directly from the catalog via phone, or order from their website. - 31809
