The BeadSmith Silamide 40-Yard Card White
Silamide is a 2-ply twisted nylon thread that is a great alternative to Nymo for beadweavers. It is also popular among quilters for its range of colors and strength. Used primarily for beadweaving, this thread is especially good for twisted fringe.

adds structure to seed motifsFebruary 4, 2011
This is the first time I tried Silamide, up until now I had used waxed quilting thread, Nymo and some cheapo stuff from the dollar store. You can wax those materials 'til the cows come home, and it still doesn't "stick", so when you are doing seed beading you have to go back every few inches of your work to "re-loop" so the work won't start to slip away and get loose.
I tried using dental floss to overcome this, and it does stick to itself, but it is relatively thick and it doesn't have the engineeering to take the bending and flexing that happens with bracelets and necklaces; in time it frays and breaks =(
Silamide is the best of both worlds; it is compact like nymo, but sticks to itself like floss. I had a great time making seed bead flowers; they had the structure and cohesion I was aiming for in the design.
Best of all, this stuff is SUPER EASY TO GET INTO THE NEEDLE!!

Perrfect sizeFebruary 4, 2011
I had purchased extra fine beading needles and some thread from a small Mom and Pop craft store years ago. Recently I started some loom work with 11 beads and ran out of thread. It took me awhile to find a size that fit both my needles and beads, and this is great. Thanks Art Beads for great products and fast shipping!

use it in all my seed bead projectsSeptember 8, 2009
This thread is pliable, tangles very little and is my favorite thread when doing beadwork, especially since I like to work in size 15's. I used nymo with beeswax about 18 or 20 years ago but the beeswax is rancid and yellowing now. Some of those projects have just not lasted. The staying power of the silamide is much better. I like the spools, which seem to last forever. Gailanne
