Thanks. I used the flame so far on Powerpro as my glue hardened, but it is a bit dangerous. I think I will move to glue and crimp beads now that I am mostly done with high carat gold.
I am totally crazy about power pro thread. I don't care that it only has two colors, white and moss green. However, for those of you who really want colored thread that is pretty good, better than silk, anyway, go to Pattye's Etsy shop. On the last few pages, she has some European thread of some kind. Anyway, it comes in lots of colors! LOTS of colors.
I have not used it yet and don't know how well that knot slides in tightly and compactly, compared to power pro, but for $2.50 for a card, it is worth trying!
Which brings up another question for Pattye:
Does Beaders Secret thread come in different sizes? I found this size comparable to 20# Power Pro, and just right for the average pearl hole, but let's say someone wanted a thicker/heavier thread for larger bead holes, would they be obliged to simply quadruple the thread?
