    I use a discontinued item called Thread Heaven. I think it's more silicon based. I found beeswax gunked up my needles and fabric and attracted dirt. I don't use either when beading though. Only for basic handsewing.

    Thank you for the tip simply adorned! PD, I always appreciate your wisdom . I think, since I've used the beeswax for making ni'ihau jewelry, I transitioned the same jewelry making with Pearls.
    I guess the way my scissors cut it, it slightly fray so I wax
