Posted by Kevin on June 21 at 03:17 pm

Summer has arrived and the A/C is pumping! It’s a good thing too, because here at Lima Beads, we’ve been inside counting and shelving loads of new stringing materials this week. Thread, Elastic, Nylon Cord, Leather, Silk Ribbon, WireLace, Irish Waxed Linen–you name it and we’re adding it to the shop today.

Stringing additions

Here are some highlights from the big batch of beading thread, cord, and ribbon added this week. There are a ton of new items to see!

Beading Cord: a multitude of colors and sizes in Griffin, C-Lon, and Elasticity cord.

Leather Cord: more leather cord styles, including some awesome metallic colors.

Beading Thread: 100 thread styles in Amiet, DandyLine, C-Lon, and WildFire.

Silk Ribbon: new hand-dyed silk ribbon colors.

Irish Waxed Linen: 2-ply and 4-ply in a variety of colors.

WireLace: 2.5mm, 12mm, and 20mm styles to add to our selection.

Have fun stringing–and enjoy the first week of summer!

    Hi Lima Team, Maybe a good blog post or tutorial would be on how to select the right stringing material for a project. Or ideas on how to use Amiet vs. Irish Waxed Linen. There are so many products available that it gets confusing. I tend to gravitate toward what I know unless a project calls for a specific product. Just my thought. Thanks, Anna
