You will find some beads are sold already strung.  This is just for display purposes and the stringing material is not always the best for a finished jewelry piece.  You will want to re-string the beads on cording of your choice.

A quick tip for re-stringing small beads, you can often slip beading wire or monofilament in beside the display string, threading through several beads at once. Transfer a few beads at a time to the new cord.

Be sure to have a knot or piece of tape at the end of your new cord so you won’t loose your beads.
