How to Prevent Beads From Cutting Beading Wire
As a rule of thumb what determines the diameter of beading wire to use to string beads and natural stones?
I strung a necklace with medium beading wire that was coated with plastic (tested to hold 40 lbs).
In the middle of a dinner party my necklace broke.
I was embarrassed after all the nice compliments I had received on the necklace.
Do I ream and prepare a natural stone bead before stringing it on the beading wire to make a necklace?
