Often I include vintage plastic beads in my design. Sometimes they are somehow adhered to the stringing material.

I’ve microwaved them, boiled them, froze and crushed them . Someone out there must have an answer?

Vintage Beads Stuck To Stringing Material
by: Anonymous

My husband has managed to pull them off the string with his teeth! Lol…what ever works.

Except that that the 30 gauge wire is all that will fit through the tiny holes, so you need to ream them. The ones smaller than 3 mm break easy.

Hope this helps.
