Seed bead jewelry thread?

I have been making seed bead jewelry for a while and the only problem I have is when I add more thread I can’t find a way to get rid of the ends. I’ve tried burning it off and it either clumps and looks ugly or it burns the beads, and I’ve tried just stitching the ends into earlier rows of my project and they always come loose and I end up cutting them off. I’m looking at selling these and I can’t have these things happening. Is there any kind of thread I could use that would seal off if I burn it or technique I could use to get rid of the ends? Thank you!

BeadGal answers:

Put a little glue on the end of the thread before you weave it into your project to hide the ends. You may also want to put a little glue on the final knot.

Help with a bead project?

I am trying to create a Barrette Center circle with seed beads. The directions say that I need to work 9 rounds of circular square stitch. What does that mean??

BeadGal answers:

This means to bead in a circle using the square stitch which is the same as a off loom stitch. Then you need to do 9 rows.  Here is a link to a turtorial.

This link has excellent photos of step by step. Make sure you scroll down, the begnining is Square stitch basic, then the variations come as you go down . Circular is there.
