item in 2007, but we still have some available; have been replaced
by LARGE BOBBINS)
(same quality as on cones and spools)
Nymo Thread COLOR
Nymo thread is an especially
strong thread used for beading. The sizing is somewhat peculiar, ranging
from the thinnest "OO'' and "O" to "A", "B", through "G". We
carry OO and O which are great for earrings or any piece that
requires you to thread and re-thread through a bead many many times.
We carry B and D which is good for necklaces and bracelets.
You should still double-up the D thread for any
piece. We carry size F.
The product on the small
bobbins is slightly weaker and softer than that on the large bobbins,
spools and cones.
A polymer thread similar to Nymo, but much stronger, and in many more
colors. Feels more like silk. Use with size #10 or size #12 English beading
There are 80 yards of thread (about 73 meters) per bobbin. We currently carry
this in sizes D and AA.
At Be Dazzled Beads in Nashville, if you are using Nymo
D, we suggest you switch to C-Lon D. If using Nymo B, we suggest you
switch to C-Lon AA.
In this section we have C-Lon Thread.

C-Lon Bead Cord, Micro Bead
Cord, and TEX-400 Bead Cord
Premium nylon beading thread. Size similar to D in Nymo
and C-Lon. Well worth the extra cost.
If you had previously switched to FireLine from Nymo,
you might consider trying ONE-G. This product might bring you back
home to thread.
You wax this thread, just like any other bead thread.
Japanese beading thread. Size B. Best with size #12 English Beading
Needles. Some people consider this to be a more easily manageable
FireLine thread is a
relatively new material with the consistency of a heavy thread,
and the strength of a coated cable wire, like soft flex.
It comes in either smoke grey or what they call crystal (really
translucent white) in colors. It comes in .006"diameter (similar
to Size B Nymo) and .008"-.009" diameter (similar to Size
D Nymo or C-Lon).
strong, flexible, prewaxed, braided bead thread incorporates new
age technology. Beadworkers and beadstringers will find that this
new product feels and works better than the finest bead thread yet
is as strong as jewelry wire. Most beads, including Austrian crystal
tapers and gemstone chip beads, will not cut this product.
It does not stretch, it knots easily, and will thread onto a #10
or #12 beading needle.
For some unknown reason, the information
on these labels changes frequently. This includes what is stated
as the pound strength, the diameter, the size listing, and the color
name. We send out what you order, even if the information on the
label does not match exactly.
Thread (A thin beading cord)
Thinner:#69 on Bobbins (similar to Nymo G, or Griffin
Size #2, or C-Lon Micro Bead Cord)
NOTE: 2008: The thread is not currently available, and as we sell
out, assume it will be gone for awhile. Check out the C-Lon Micro Bead
Cord as a good substitute.
Thicker: 2 ounce (apprx 170 yards) Spools (a little thicker than
Gudebrod or Beadsmith 100% Silk E, similar to Griffin Size #6, and
C-Lon #18 Bead Cord)
This upholstery thread
(really a bead cord) is a heavy, twisted thread yet supple and flexible.
Use bobbins with
size 8°-11° beads
where you need a really stiff tension, or spools with size 6/0-8/0 beads.
It's also perfect for stringing our large Czech pressed glass beads (those
leaves, hearts, drops, triangles, pendants, etc.) You'll find that
milliner's or other sewing needle is easier to use with Conso than
a true beading needle which has a long narrow eye. For stringing,
a Big Eye or twisted wire needle or dental bridge floss.
Excellent for bead crochet or netting projects which are to stand
alone. Can be used to warp loom. Less stretchy than Nymo, and results
in stiffer project.
Conso is sold on
bobbins (thinner thread) and spools (thicker thread).
