Want a tool that keeps beads from falling off multiple strands of jewelry wire or thread? This video tutorial shows how to use the Bead Stopper coil and solve this jewelry making dilemma.
Squeeze the end loops on the coil of the Bead Stopper™ to spread the coils apart from one another.
Insert the stringing material in between two of the coils of the bead stopper.
Release the end loops when the stringing material is inserted at the desired length.
Tip: The same can be done for a multiple-strand piece.
Arrange needles by size
Seal plastic baggies
Create stitch work with seed beads or peyote stitch
Pass the needles through the first row of beads, clipping the bead stopper on either end of the needle so that the needle doesn't slide off of the stringing material Tips:
There are two sizes of bead stoppers: standard and mini
Use the larger bead stopper for larger, bolder beads or thicker stringing material
Use the smaller bead stopper for smaller beads or thinner stringing material
Multiple strands can be inserted into one coil or separate coils in order to see how the project will drape or how the beads will lay in the design
The bead stopper can be used in place of an alligator clip, adhesive tape or anything that may leave residue on your project
