  • In the beginning, instead of line, used for weaving of beads, You can use a strong thread, eg, caproic.
  • The thread should not take longer than plaiting, than half a meter. Too long a thread is not very comfortable to use, if there is no particular skill and experience, as it can become entangled or scuff when passing through the bugle.
  • When selecting the size of the beads should pay attention to its number, an example of which denote, looks, eg, in the following way: 7/0. This designation indicates the total number of beads in equal chain 2, 54 cm (inch). It is believed, The more beads have a numbered, the smaller the bead itself. But a comparison can be made only with respect to the product of the same manufacturer. One of the best quality is recognized by many Japanese beads, but its price is also quite a tall. For the price of the most affordable product is chinese beads, but the quality is considerably inferior to many manufacturers, one of its drawbacks, eg, is the roughness and the presence of irregularities on beads.

  • Excess wax on the thread are removed using a needle, in this way: thread passed through the needle eye, appropriate size, and removed all unnecessary.
  • If the end of the thread exfoliate and threading beads to your work out was hard, and in this case it is possible and necessary to use wax to seal them and rub the tip.
  • On thread beads worn simultaneously with a needle, you want to keep in the right hand, and then doctored forefinger. Large beads are strung up on the needle.
  • In that case, when it became clear, that the size of the selected thread or wire is not enough for all of braiding, it is better to stop the operation immediately and start a new build-up. Do not leave too short ends from the previous and the new thread, because, in consequence, it would be difficult to hide and secure (left ends of the thread, as late as, and at the beginning of, should not be less than 10 cm). Capacity thread or fishing line to start a little earlier from the place, which ended the previous, it will need to repeat the previous part of a small piece of the picture, while trying to re-threading does not pass a needle and thread through the previous thread, a place next to her.
  • Upon completion at the beginning of the work on a thread, before you pass it through the beads, PVA glue can be applied, for better fixation and strength of the product.
  • Only for beginners Bead Weaving, it is better to do with the large beads.
  • Incorporation yarn is as follows: thread passed through the needle through a pair of beads drawing, then around the warp yarn products made fixing knot Collar. Such nodules for better fixation is necessary to make at least a couple, at a certain distance from each other. The remaining small end of the thread can be fixed, singe it with a match. In that case, if the work was done with light beads, the thread is better to just cut up by the roots, so as not to spoil them.
  • Beads should pull each other tight enough, so as not to remain areas of the thread between them and at the same time not to pull the product.
