  • Nylon beading thread.

    Hello there everyone!

    I'm wondering if anyone can help me with finding some nylon beading thread, which is a little bit thicker and stronger than the illusion cord variety? I'm not after the wired variety ('tigertail')
    I'd be using it for stringing medium-sized beads. I bought some in a bead shop a while ago but am not sure what it's called to be able to order some more.
    Thanks if anyone can help!

    I've got KO thread for normal seedbeading, and Fireline for anything that might cut in, like Swaros or fire polish. http://beadsage.com

      Thanks Peter, is the fireline like fishing line (see through ), but kind of flexible which is what I want? I don't think I'm explaining it very well.
      (Well done on your SRAJD feature by the way...)

        Yes, is is fishing line! There's not a lot of difference in price, but fishing line tends to come in larger reels. Thanks for the comment!

          Sounds like 'FireLine' that you need.

          Comes in Crystal clear and Smoke grey colours

              Hello, I was looking for some good nylon to work with Swarovski and czech crystals. At the moment I'm using TITAN by Grauvell. I'm very happy with it, its finishin line too, but the other day the ring got caught with something and it broke.
              I was looking at fireline in internet but there're 3 or 4 different kinds of Fireline. Which one is the best for Swarovski and czech?

              thanks!

                We have a nylon thread called C-Thru B cord, it is 0.4mm translucent braided monofilament cord and is very strong and durable and it is also resistant to being worn by rough bead holes (you can buy it by the metre or on a reel)

                Best wishes

                  Hi.
                  Great thread, no pun intended. I have some fireline which is great, hangs well and doesn't kink but it is not as easy to work with as Tigertail or some fishing line type stuff that came with the first pack of seed beads I bought. It's too thick to use a needle and too fine to pick up seed beads easily. Should I be looking at something thicker than this 0.009"? If so what is best?
                  Thanks

                  Di.

                    Thanks for the answers. Its so difficult to find the better thread for your beadworks. I add your shop to my fave list. 0.4mm is too thick. I'll explain you what happened. I made a ring for my mother-in-law. I used Swarovski bicone 4mm topaz and some dark brown AB 2x effects ( i cant remember the name of the brown). The first thread I used was nylon 0.25mm / 50gr and the ring broke a few weeks later. When I saw it the metalic swarovski cut the nylon so that was the reason of the break. After this i went to a fishing shop and bought this TITAN 0.25mm/6kg and for my surprise it broke again for the same reason in some weeks after I re-made it!
                    I also had problems with the 6202 swarovski hearts, which cut the nylon if it's 0.25mm - 0.30mm (I tested it with those previous nylon I said above and the fireline crystal 0.25/17.5kg) The only thread that survives is 0.40mm.

                    Now I need to test fireline with some swarovski ab or ab 2x.

                    Since that I dont use swarovski bicone effects, but I also want to be sure I can use a "safe" thread

                      Are you sure one of the beading wires won't work? - they are very flexible and even come in an extra fine 0.25mm diameter (we stock Soft Touch Wire which is 7 strands of stainless steel wire coated in nylon, it is very flexible and fine - we suggest using it for pearls and beads with tiny holes) We are also going to be stocking the flexrite version in the next week or so.

                      Or you could use a bead reamer to smooth the edges of the beads - our bead reamer set comes with a 45 degree point for doing this.

                      Sorry I can't think of a better thread for you to use or another solution.... maybe someone else will come up with something?
