Default Best glue for glueing beads on wire.

Hello Everyone,

Im getting so frustrated right now. I create these awesome fabric butterflys and for the antennas I place beads on a wire and at the end I add a pearl. I'm having the hardest time getting the pearl to stick to the wire. I'm using hot glue and I'm sure there has to be a better kind of glue out there to do that. What glue would you all suggest. If i can't find a better way to do them Im going to have to stop selling them. They take wayyyy to long and as it is now there not worth selling, even though I've sold more of those than anything. I've attached a photo of the butterfly I create so everyone can see what I'm talking about.

Thanks,
michille

Start with a head pin--this is a short, straight length of wire with a stopper at the bottom to keep beads from falling off.

Or you can curl the end of your wire so that the bead has some thing to rest on while you add the rest of the beads.

The beads are cute. I have no suggestion on how to glue them. I use flower stamens for mine, you get the same effect and it is so much easier.

I've never made these, but this is how I always see them - with the stamens.
