Profile Information

What is your favorite beading activity? Surely you can separate one:)
Stringing at the moment
Other beading activities you enjoy or want to learn about?
More seed bead work, wire work and eventually lampwork and some silver smithing. I would also like to try ceramic beads.
About Me:
I would just like to tell you about me personally, I have a husband Jeff who has been part of setting up this websit and is also interested in beading. I'm a mother of 2 boys and 1 girl and grandmum to 1 grandson and 2 granddaughters.
I have been beading for a few years now, on and off, mainly due to family commitments. Now I have a little more time I am looking forward to trying new things and extending myself.

There are a number of new techniques I want to try, and have all these designs floating around up there just waiting to burst out.

Does Anyone Here Have Experience With NYMO Beading Thread!!!!!

Posted on March 30, 2009 at 10:25am 13 Comments

I was wondering if anyone has any knowledge of the NYMO beading thread. I have descovered that there are a number of different sizes and I'm not sure what the difference is. The sizes I have been told are D, B,O,OO etc. I want to make bracelets with seed beads, bugle beads and sqaure beads. I'm just not sure what size thread to use. Please can anyone tell me anything they know about this thread and their experiences with using it.

I have used NYMO thread. Although it is not my favorite, when I need matching thread color I reach for the NYMO. The size D is equivalent to 6 lb test Fireline in size.    DO NOT use it without a conditioner or you will have lots of problems.  The 00 is the finest size and the 0 is fine and it is thicker as you go through ABCD  etc.

Thanks for welcoming me to the site.   I don't have many patterns of my own yet but I do teach a group of Senior Ladies and their favorite is RAW also.   They are an enthusiastic group and I am always looking for patterns to share with them...  (Only 1 uses a computer so I have to have patterns I can share.)

I have been making jewelry for many years but have really been into it in the past 10 years.

Thank you for having me!!  As to the question about the Nymo thread, the B is small and the D is large, (think of bra cups)  LOL   This comes from a website I like and I think is the best explanation I have seen, you will just have to compare the materials that she is talking about to similar things you would be working with. But it explains the threads very well, even some I didn't know about.

Thanks for the welcome, Ann!  Your photos are beautiful.  I'll get some pics of my work up soon, I hope (it involves bugging my husband, the photographer).  I'm so glad I found this site and I'm sure I'm going to spend hours and hours here!

Thank you.

It's lovely how I'm being made welcome.

I'm just getting back to beading and have been exploring the site and it's wonderful.
