Q:I would like to use this crystal pearl to make a beaded Kumihimo bracelet. I will be using #18 s-lon bead cord and wanted to know if it is going to be necessary to use a bead reamer in order to string these pearls? Thank you!
A: April, I think you may find it difficult to string directly onto the S-Lon with a needle, so I tried this new trick Dena showed me last week and I was able to string them on without reaming the beads. Take 6 inches or so of Fireline and thread it into your needle. Tie an overhand knot, knotting the two ends together forming a loop. Slip the knot up to the eye of the needle, run your S-Lon end through the loop, string a pearl onto the needle and pull it over the Fireline, to the S-Lon, giving it a good tug, I used a pair of flat nose pliers to help, and the pearl will go on to the S-Lon! This should save you a lot of time! This method works well when using a bead spinner to load seed beads for Kumihimo! Karla
