C-Lon Cord and Thread: What Is It and How Should I Use It?

C-Lon Thread and Cord

Beading thread is an essential component of just about any beading project. Most beaders have many different kinds. You may even know one of those beaders who have an old toolbox full of partially used spools of every kind of wire and thread imaginable. (Or maybe that's you!) But hey, they all serve their very own, very important purpose.

New Silky Beads Have Arrived!

New This Week - Over 200 New Silky Beads!


silky beadsThis week's new arrival at ABD is huge and it's one we are particularly excited about.  If you're not already beading with them, these tiny diamond-shaped treasures are called Silky Beads and they are a great way to lend your designs a unique look.  
Czech glass silky beads are diamond-shaped two-hole beads that come in two different sizes - 5mm and 6mm - and 40 different colors.  The hole is drilled diagonally which gives it that groovy diamond shape.  Additionally, the two sides of the bead are different.  One side is flat while on the other side, there is a ridge.  At 0.8mm, they have a fairly large hole size, as well.
