Nymo or Fireline…?

March 6, 2010

I started this one with a strip of even count peyote stitch.  Then added edging and silver beading down the center.  I used 4lb fireline.  I am experimenting with different strings/threads.  Nymo has a more natural feel to it.  Fireline is very strong, but is stiffer, which is not a bad quality for some beading projects… ie: a  spiral bracelet.  Fireline is more difficult to weave in, when needing to add more string.  I prefer Nymo for  peyote stitch  bracelets.  I do however,  foresee Fireline having benefits in other jewelry projects in the future.

Thanks for reading……….. Beadnrose.

    One of most problems in beadwork is the right thread to choose ! I’m using c-lon for all sorts of stitch but I must always pay attention to work.
    Are you going to attend beadwork classes?
    Bye from a beader! Gloria

    Thanks for your great comments Gloria. I have recently been taking beading classes at my local bead store. This is what peaked my interest. I will try c-lon. I am not sure I have heard of it, but will look it up. Thanks again
