I wanted to mention that Beaded Images has 20% off all HEX CUT Delicas, Nymo thread and other trim beads and things. There is a banner at the top of the home page linking to information on the sale. I know the high prices these days, everybody loves to hear about a sale :-)LacySee More
I tried visiting the General Bead website the other day and found none of their bead order information available. Has anyone heard anything about General Bead and if they are still open or not?Thanks,LacySee More
I have used size O for earrings and it works well. My concern was if size B would be to heavy for smaller sized beadwork. Seeing what size beads the threads are best for does help give me an idea.
"i found this little chart, don't know if it will help or not...
"For beading thread & needles the guide below is based on English beading needles and Nymo thread.
Bead Size Thread Size Needle Size
8 or larger F Size 10
10 D Size…"
I have searched the internet for a chart on Nymo thread that would compare the different thicknesses and found nothing. Can anyone tell me how much of a difference there is in thickness of size 0 Nymo and size B Nymo. Are they close enough to be interchangeable?Thanks,LacySee More
Lots of my stuff comes from pictures either I or my husband took. Then I have done some searching for images online but that is tricky to avoid copyrighted material. Lots of the bracelets are made from patterns by Lesha McPhearson who has a shop at Etsy under the name of Beadholden. We have a setup where I make a pattern of hers and send her the pictures to use and then try to sell the finished product.
