Beading Tip: make bead holes smaller with tubing

Pineapple Express Earrings from Jesse James BeadsOne of the things I love most about Jesse James Beads is many of their beads have large holes.  This makes them great for ribbon, leather and other unique stringing materials.  BUT!  What happens when you fall in love with a large holed bead and you want to string it on beading wire or a head pin?  This.  This is what happens dear friends…Tubing bead tipYou can simply thread a piece of tubing through the bead and cut it flush.  This tapers down the hole size perfectly for wire and fills up the extra space, preventing wonky beads on wire.  Hallelujah!  Jesse James Beads beading tip!See what I mean?!  Stay tuned for this magical tubing to be added to the JJB site.Jesse James Beads EarringsIn the mean time, be sure to check out our pretty chain wrapped beads!
