Do You Use Fishing Line for Beading? 2 Replies

I like to use fishing line such as Fireline for beading and stringing. I find it to be really strong yet flexible. Fireline also has a dark color or an opaque white crystal color which works great…Continue

Nice to meet you too Kathy.  I'm disappointed about it too but guess that's just the way it goes.

Hi Diane - nice to meet you - I am a little disappointed with the activity - or lack of.

Hi Kathy.  To me it doesn't seem like too many people comment very often on here but it's nice to see another member.

Just thought I'd introduce myself.  I have been doing beading for about two years now and am always looking to improve.  Thank you.

Gotta agree! I'm still a little leery of the new colors they have out. Are they really as tough as our good ole braided steel?

I only use 49 strand braided steel that is coated in  .014 or .019 depending on the weight of the piece I am making.  For me, the issue is limiting stretching and the drape of my work... with 49 strands you have the best flexibility and a beautiful drape and the best of all, no kinks!!!!!!!!!!!!

I tend to avoid using fishing line as I find it stretches and it's so difficult to crimp, I love stainless steel beading wire which gives a neater finish, is easy to crimp and is definitely stronger than fishing line. This necklace is one of my latest stringing projects
