    Not sure how many jewellery makers out there but I will ask anyway. Recently I have got more into beading, not the delicate, detailed, complicated kind, more macrame beaded styles and I am gradually looking to increase my stock of stringing materials. I prefer to use leather as a base, it seems to hold it’s shape more and I hope it will be more long lasting and hard wearing. I have been using BeadSmith’s S Lon cord (.5mm) and am getting on well with that but now I need something finer and I don’t want to lose strength. I am confused as to what has got the best reputation: KO Nylon Beading thread, Nymo Side D or Superlon D….or something else. Has anyone got any experience or advise please, it would be much appreciated. Thank you.

    I do a lot of Kumihimi beading .. I think you cant go wrong with the Superlon.. i know lots of other kumi’ makers use this… it also depends on what thickness you want.. beasmith is good to buy from Hope this helps.
