Attaching Beads

Q.
I am interested in making design number 88HM, Olivio, from the Gallery of Designs. I have purchased everything I need from Fire Mountain Gems to make it, but I need to know how to attach the beads to the round flat disks.

Nymo® nylon thread and a beading needle are used to connect the beads to the perforated disks. ''Earrings with Swarovski Crystal Beads, Delica® Seed Beads and Silver-Plated Discs,'' illustrated instructions detail the technique to make this design.

FireLine® thread is also a good choice for thread. Use a FiberFuse™ Thread Burner or wire nippers to cut the FireLine.
