Needle-End Silk Cord from Rings & Things is popular for stringing gemstones, pearls, glass beads... just about any type of bead! There is a needle built into one end of the cord, so you don't need to worry about finding a needle the right size, or threading a tiny beading needle.
- Size 2 = 0.45mm (works for most freshwater pearl beads and small gemstones beads)
- Size 4 = 0.6mm (a good general purpose size)
- Size 6 = 0.7mm (popular for stringing larger gemstones)
Bead tips are the most popular way to finish the ends of necklaces and bracelets strung on silk cord, and bullion is an attractive, but less common material for finishing the ends. (See "Related Products" tab of any item below.)
