It can be used to create a variety of jewelry pieces, including necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. This thread can also be used to embellish clothing, accessories, and home décor items.


When working with Miyuki beading thread, I like to use a size 12 beading needle. This size is thin enough to easily pass the thread through the beads.

What is KO beading thread?

Made in Japan, KO beading thread is a type of thread that is specifically designed for beadwork. It is strong and durable, and it can be used to create a variety of different bead stitches. This thread is a good substitute for Nymo or S-Lon and has the same size as a Nymo B.

It is perfect for any beading technique that requires multiple passes through the same bead such as peyote stitch, brick stitch, on or off-loom bead weaving. Beaded Kumihimo projects work also very well with KO thread.

Choose a Miyuki thread in the color that matches your beads

The color of your thread can make a huge difference in your jewelry designs. It’s a good idea to use Miyuki thread in the same color as your beads. On the other hand, you can also create stunning designs by choosing a thread that contrasts with the colors of your bead. Finally, as the thread becomes a part of your jewelry designs, it’s just a matter of taste!

One good thing about Miyuki nylon beading thread is that it comes in a wide range of lovely colors to match your seed beads.
