Stringing black diamonds beads

what are people stringing them on?? tiger tail or silk or something
else?

Please, G-D -! NOT Tiger Tail! Screams of “Cheap”, won’t protect
the stones from abrading each other, and it WILL break! I’m old
school - I use silk. Knotted between the stones. Better drape,
professional finish. Do it right.

Good question. I’m having trouble finding something that works. I
tried using 28 gauge wire, but it’s too fat! I’m looking for 30
gauge. Smaller than that and I’m not sure it will even work.

We us Beadalon Designer Series Bead Stringing Wire .010 black #
JW19B-0 for our diamond beads measuring 2 - 4 mm. Hope this helps.
