Topics: Organza Ribbon, Use with Swarovski crystal and Pearls
How do I thread Swarovski pearls and crystals onto organza ribbon?
A Wide-Eye Needle™ works well when stringing Swarovski® crystals and pearls onto organza ribbon. The needle is constructed so that the center opens wide, allowing you to easily add thread or ribbon.
Another option is to stiffen the ribbon end so you don't need to use a needle. Use a good pair of scissors to cut the ribbon end at a sharp angle. Add a coat of Dritz® Fray Check™ to the point and let dry. Now the stronger, pointed ribbon end won't fray as you pull it through the beads.
