Using a bead spinner is a must-have skill for any jewelry maker, whether they're a professional or just starting. With a bead spinner, you can easily and swiftly apply beads to threads or cords, elevate your beadwork to a new level.

The first one I received was a major dud. I showed it in my Hobbyworker review video. The bowl is off-center to the motor shaft, so the spin was pretty wonky and uneven. This was a manufacturing defect. TO me fair in the blog post, I got a second one so I could test one that isn’t a dud to see if it would change my mind about it at all. But… the second one was also a dud with the same exact issue. Hmmm. They either have really terrible quality control, or someone designed this thing with an off-centered bowl. Either way, thumbs down, man. I wanted to like this one, too, because it’s pretty and made of wood and has a cute little lid. Spinning the bead spinner manually is actually fun, intriguing, meditative and even relaxing once you get the hang of it. You get better speed control with manual spinners which is an important aspect for beginners. I’m guessing by now, you are at least tempted… So, let me talk about how to use a bead spinner. How does this magic gadget actually work?

How to use a Bead Spinner

With just three different speeds (low, medium, and high), it’s not as flexible as other models with variable speed. The highest speed is a little less than other spinners, and the slowest is a little slower, but all are usable. And you can switch directions, so I think it’s more usable for a wider range of beaders than those without speed controls at all. A bonus is that the noise level is lower than most other models I’ve tested, which is always a win in my book. In the rest of this post, I am going to focus on how to use a bead spinner for French beading. But remember, you can also use this clever gadget for a stringing project, or possibly for string beads prior to bead crochet. You may also know of other crafts where this gadget would be helpful. Finishing: Once you have threaded all the required beads, cut the string, and tie a knot. Leave a long enough tail for attaching to a clasp or adding extra beads at the end.

Fill the bowl with your beads but be careful not to overfill the bowl. As you spin the base, the centripetal force makes the beads shift to the edge of the base and slide onto the needle. Threads and Cords – We recommend looking at Miyuki and KO Thread or FireLine as the best quality threads for loom work. Alternatively for stretchy loom projects, Miyuki Dura-Line or Opelon are the best seed-beaders elastics. What’s great about these spinners is that you can control the speed. If you like to go slow, you can go slow. If you like to go faster, you can do that too. Just don’t go too fast or beads will fly everywhere. You can spin either direction. These spinners fit around 2-3 hanks of size 11/0 seed beads (70-120 grams) in the bowl. I have several spinners in this size. Well, there is really only one definitive rule for learning how to use a bead spinner… Practise, practise, practise!Look for a bead spinner made from durable materials like wood or high-quality plastic. A well-constructed spinner will last longer and provide a smoother bead-spinning experience. Take the thread and thread it through the hole in the bottom of the spindle and tie a knot at the end. Leave at least a 4-inch tail to ensure that the beads don't fall off the end of the thread. There are different types of bead spinners available in the market, and selecting the right one depends on your needs and preferences. Some of the most common types of bead spinners are: Manipulating Beads: Bead spinners allow you to manipulate beads and include them in your designs effortlessly. As a result, you can afford to incorporate more complex patterns and unique beads that were once impossible to work with.

Always use the right size or type of beads to spin. Using beads that are too large can make the spinner stop working, and using beads that are too small can cause the beads to bunch up. While the bowl is turning, dip the tip of the needle inside the bowl near the edge of the beads in motion. This is where it takes practice: holding the needle at an angle that helps the beads feed onto the line. Don’t worry if the beads fly out! With practice you will learn how to control this. Enhancing Design: Bead spinners can enhance and streamline beadwork design by allowing more time for creativity and experimentation. It can be challenging to hold beads and thread at the same time. Wood is the traditional and most popular material for bead spinners. Today, there are metallic (rare) and even plastic models. The base must spin at a steady pace, but don’t spin it too fast, as spinning it gently seems to be more efficient. And here’s a pro tip – lay a towel underneath the bead spinner to collect spilled beads. HOW DO YOU USE A BEAD SPINNER NEEDLE?There are different types of bead spinners available in the market such as manual bead spinners, electric bead spinners, and battery-operated bead spinners. I do like the bowl on this model, though. It’s just like the Keoker bowl, which I reveiwed above so I won’t repeat all that info. Quiet Operation: Battery-powered spinners tend to operate quietly compared to electric mains-powered models. This can be important if noise is a concern in your workspace or if you prefer a quieter crafting experience.
