Guess it depends on how you want to wear it and if you want to put a fastener on. I have used stretchy cord and a thread specifically made for beading. Guess it would depend on how big the beads were too. I love amber. Bet it will be gorgeous!
I'm wondering what thread is used for the jewelry that is bought commercially. I used the beads to make up a necklace with thread and a clasp I had on hand, but I'm worried it won't hold up. It's a mix of light and dark beads and did turn out beautiful!
I'm also wondering how people making them make all those little knots in btwn. each bead. I tried a few times and failed miserably at getting the knots right tight up against the beads so I gave up, but I'd like to know the trick for doing it so that if the necklace ever breaks I won't lose all the beads.

Never tried to knot in between so no experience with that. Pretty sure Michaels has the beading thread in the beading aisle. I KNOW that Crafty Business carries it for sure as I bought it there not long ago!
I'm going to check out Michael's tonight. I'll have to google Crafty Business to see where it is as I've never been there, thanks
