I have just started to make my own rigs and was wondering if anyone can explain how to use a stopper bead behind a sequin. I have a few different size beads but how do i stop them running free on the snoods.

You dont use a bead for that normally.
Its the sort of thing you use silicone tube pulled through itself for or you could use a float stop or a gripper stop.

That is the simple way but twisted silicone works fine or power gum as Shaun says or have even used telephone wire in the past.

Thanks for the advice ken i have those beads you suggest i just don't know how to use them. I want to use them behind a sequin to stop lug worm riding up the line.

Feed the snood line through the wire loop (not too far- you'll see why);
slide the bead up the wire, til it's snug against the snood line; then, gently but firmly, keep pushing;
the wire loop will pull the snood line through the stop bead.
Adjust to suit.
