Necklace Disaster....

Q: Think of anything (other than crochet cotton ;-) ) sized in numbers. Doesn't 'Nymo' come in 0 (zero) and 00 (double zero)?

A: LOL You're right, it was size B 'Nymo'... must have been thinking about needle size. Well, the beads at the back were seeds and they're scattered all over, but you're probably right... I think I'm going to try the Soft-Flex. In a single strand? That WOULD be the problem. I rarely use B for anything that will be under any stress at all, only for something like tiny earrings, or something with multiple passes, like square stitch. I use D almost exclusively - B only when forced to because of the color I want. This means my amulet bags are like tapestry or upholstery fabric, which may, or may not be, a good thing, depending on preference. I have seen some done with 'Delicas' that flow like silk - I assume those were done with lighter thread, and I tried 'Soft-Touch' for weaving - no matter what the promos say, it doesn't work. I use it for stringing pearls mostly, and 'Soft-Flex' for stringing everything else. I was so sick of having things break when using 'Nymo' that I just bead everything now on lightweight tigertail. It's pretty cheap. The only disadvantage for me is that I can't use a needle. If you have time, please explain why you like 'Silamide' so much more than 'Nymo'. I'm using doubled 'Nymo' to make 'Daisy Chain' anklets (I made one for fun and now everyone wants one). :) I use 'Thread Heaven' on the 'Nymo'. The doubled strands plus running through the clasps three times seem to be holding up to the sun and surf. However, having made the progression from 'Tigertail', to 'C-FLEX', to 'Soft- Flex', and 'Soft Touch'. I'm not opposed to learning and growing, even if it means I'll be selling my 'Nymo' at an auction. LOL
