Stringing 2-3mm Rounds

Q: Any suggestions for what or how I string those tiny tiny 2-3mmm peridot rounds or the 2mm Tourmaline beads?  Is there a trick to threading those little holes? Terrified of taking them off the temp. string they came on- worried I’ll never get them threaded again.
 
A: For the 2-3mm rounds, they string up just fine on a fine wire. If you are stringing the small rounds with larger beads I’d recommend using ZambaPro 49 .014 jewelry wire (ZP49-30F-014). If you are stringing them on their own I’d recommend using ZambaPro 49 .012 jewelry wire (ZP49-30F-012). Magnifiers may also help if you are having trouble seeing the holes.
