  • FireLine

    $10.95$28.95

    Originally a fishing line, FireLine has been embraced by the beading community as a tough, flexible thread substitute.  Folks love to use it when seed beading with crystals or bugles, as it resists being cut by their sharp edges. Some people use a special pair of cutters or old scissors with it, as cutting FireLine with your best shears will dull them quickly.
