Things to keep in mind while making a nylon thread necklace

If you ever watched a craftsman skillfully making a thread necklace you must have gotten intimidated by their speed and accuracy. Well, it all takes practice to reach the desired level of perfection, however, according to our skilled artisans, there are certain important things that play a key role in thread jewellery making, such as: 

  • Colour of the thread: When used with different colours of beads, you must keep in mind that the colour of the thread is not contrasting. The most common choices are black, white and golden yellow. Pick the closest shade to the beads, clasp and the finish of the chain. 

  • Thread thickness: To finish the thread necklace quickly, you need to be mindful of the thread thickness. Some beads require a single strand of the nylon thread, whereas in some cases, it is ideal to use multiple strands. It all depends on the weight and the size of the beads, so be wise and thank us later.

  • Zari threads: Now let’s come back to the original question that how to finish threaded customized jewellery with a clasp and a back chain. The key tip shared by our Kaarigars is that they use zari threads. It is the traditional method of quickly beading the necklace and securing the clasp and our artisans have been following this technique for generations. 

It boils down to the choice of thread and of course a temporary necklace made from zari thread. You will have to create a make-shift arrangement from zari thread, which is easier to handle as compared to nylon threads. The zari threads work like a needle and make things a lot faster.
