Fishing thread: It is transparent and not easy to break, but when knoting you need special attention. Because the fishing thread has smooth surface, if not knot well, it is easier to loosen. It is mainly used for pattern beading, general selection 0.2 to 0.3 MM thick, make large vase, paper box need 0.6 MM thick. Round elastic thread: round transparent, similar to fishing thread, but more flexibility than fishing thread. General elastic for wearing ordinary round bracelet. When adding buttons, tie a firmly knot, suggesting to drop a drop of liquid glue, avoid wire slide open. Filamentous elastic thread: various colors, flat shape, root filaments of quad synthesis in one thread, commonly used to wear natural crystal strings, match with different colorful beads. Friction with beads, is easy to break for a long time, especially stringing of crystal, glass, it needs to be replaced usually. Wax thread, jade thread: mainly used in necklace and bracelet, this kind of thread is often used in common jewelry beading. It is suitable for those who want to creat strong apeak feeling in beading. The effect can't be achieved by other thread. Jade thread can be compiled as well as wearing with jade together. Copper thread: It is in soft texture, used to do with modelling, different specifications and? different degree create different effects. It is useful in fixing stuffs. Don't use copper thread firmly , or it will be broken. Steel thread: material is hard, commonly used in bracelet making, collar, etc, also can do the flower design, but it is not easy as master as copper thread. It can not be used to tie up everything; In the absence of the crease, will automatically return to original state, not weaving.
