Has anyone ever nade a dutch spiral necklace using SoNo thread? Am trying to make a thin one using 15/o seeds and wanted to use the thinner threads. I don't know if it's going to stretch out to ugly-land, or even hold up. Anyone ever tried it?
Have you given any thought to using 2# Fireline. Now that is fine with no stretch.
I'm trying to make one small enough to use this stone as a focal

SEllen - good suggestion, as I was about to head to a local sporting store...... Like I NEED anymore odd spools, right? I'm still trying to work out the pattern/colors I want to use, so it's not sitting here screaming at me to get moving on it and running out to try to find 2 line wouldn't have been a problem. Thing is, I LOVE the SoNo thread. Never would have even tried it but for someone on this forum. (Jen maybe?) I do know so far that I can't use the sz 8's. they're just way too big for the outcome I want. Don't have the right colors to try a sz 10 seed instead, so I might be running out to shop anyway. ugh. As much as I love to buy beads, I really hate to go shopping. Everything is a minimum of 20 miles away, so once I'm out I try to do everything in one trip and sometimes my planning schedule doesn't work out so great.
I recently left a previous comment on this site advocating the use of Fire line thread. Ever used it? Once you do, i doubt you'd want to use anything else!

Hi Emma, and thank you but, yes. I do use fireline a great deal. I just don't have any #2 as I've never felt the need for it. Still unsure what i'll end up with yet.
