This Nylon thread is the thread of choice for beadworking and beadweaving. Slightly waxed and lightly twisted if you do not stretch an arms length of this thread with a bit of a tug as you unwind the thread from the spool or bobbin, you finished work may eventually "ease" creating a relaxed feel to the piece. Remember this is a nylon product so you can easily "burn" a blob (Knot) in the end of your work with a lighter and a quick puff of air to blow it out.



Silamide is a two-ply twisted nylon thread which many beadworkers use as an alternative to Nymo. Ideal for brick stitch or peyote stitch.


A new, flat, fibrous cord, which doesn't require crimps, and has unbelievable strength. Save valuable stringing time by directly stringing temorary strands of beads onto Opelon. Simply tie Opelon to the temporary strand and slide beads downward. Instantly create bracelets, necklaces, fringe and more. Knots remain virtually invisible.


Monofilament thread is soft, yet strong. The blue line monofilament is recommended by author Marla Gassner in her book "Beyond the Bead and I"

Gudebrod Silk

This smooth, twisted three ply 100% pure silk thread has the most luxurious feel and softest sheen of any natural fiber. Extremely supple, yet resistant to stretch and wear. Durable enough to withstand the abrasion of pearls, glass beads and gemstones. NOTICE!!!!! Gudebrod has gone out of business. We will continue to stock this brand until we can not get it. As we have to we will be shifting to another brand of silk. (Currently Jewelry Silk from Bead Smith) We will continue with the Gudebrod headings for a time, and let you know which brand you can expect by item

SoNo Beading thread was designed by Master Beader Sonoko Nozue, this nylon thread is strong enough that doubling isn't necessary and it is difficult to pierce because it does not shred. Tangling is also minimized because it is non-clinging. It will fit on a #12 beading needle and works like a cross between Nymo and Silamide. SoNo is sold by the 100 meter spool.
