These are the metallic threads I use. I use 2 strands and get a reasonable thickness. The best part about these threads, it is very easy to undo.
Unraveling is also easy, no tangling! The only down side is limited selection of colors.
I am looking into setting up an on line buying link.
The gold looks nice in the photo, but in clear light it is a little garish.
The pink and green have been standard for the last 2 years now.
Used a firmer hand tatting these earrings, and quite like the results. Though think it would have turned out better with a slightly thicker thread.
The blue glass beads were suddenly available after hunting for them every where!
Next Tigers eye!
