Q:I just purchased these beautiful bicone beads and also bought some 4mm Chinese crystal rounds and asked about the threading hole size. If it is only approximately .5 mm will I not be able to string them on #18 superlon? I had planned on using bead cord and not wire.
A: You should be able to thread it on, however you may need to use a small thread such as fireline or sewing thread to get it on. Thread the needle onto the smaller thread, about 3 to 4" doubling it, tie a knot and create a loop. Pull the knot towards the eye, slip the S-Lon through the loop of thread and string the beads onto the needle and over the S-Lon. This is the trick I used to string on my seed beads. Karla
