Well it was bound to happen
I'd want to learn to knot
but i can't say i wanted to so soon
this could be another slow burning threads
But i need to start at the beginning and get thread

What do i buy ?

My fun multi strand from the mall jewler broke at work yesterday
I had only worn it one day
But its been sitting in its box unworn for 3 or 4 years so i can't really take it back

The first pearl i found in my clothes when i changed my shirt so at least it is individually knotted 20210523_101415.jpg 20210523_101358.jpg

I was going to use nail sissors or a quick-un-pick to disconnect the strand that needs restrung

Bernadette can get you the needles as well. Thread comes in different sizes and of course colours. She can advise you on what you need...just send a message.

Your local beadshop may sell Griffin Silk Beadcord. They come with the option of a needle already attached making it easy to use for the novice crafter.

True those little attached needles are handy but I think you'll find that Beaders Secret ( for those of us Down Under) or PatriciaSaabDesigns on ETSY thread in America , ( same thread) will be much easier to work with. The knots slide more easily.

Depending on the size of the pearls you can get Extra Fine Fine Medium or Heavy needles . They have a nice big loop so threading isn't hard.

The same with the thread Extra Fine Fine Medium Heavy

I use mostly the Medium in both but I've got all the sizes. When I find a thread colour that I like I buy it in all sizes.
