Topics: Crystal Stringing Material

Q.
What type of threads can I use for crystals? Can I use silk thread or only wire?

- Tanya
A.
You can use thread with crystals if you would like. It is recommended to use Nymo nylon thread size D since it is the heaviest Nymo thread available, or Silkon® bonded nylon thread #2. Both threads are nylon based and resistant to the sharp edges crystals can sometimes have.

You can also use PowerCord™ elstic cord for a stretchy design; and for designs using a clasp, Accu-Flex® Professional Quality Beading wire is always your safest bet as it's strong, durable and has a protective nylon coating.
