I've got a necklace someone asked me to re-string and I am looking for advice about what might be the best stringing material. It is heavy - lots of glass beads - and I think that either the weight or the abrasion on the wire from the beads caused it to break. I'm thinking of switching out some of the beads for lighter elements, and I want to make sure I string it on something sturdy. I've read the Google results on "which beading wire to use": they focus on diameter, strand number, and tensile strength, not the differences between brands. All these choices all seem similar, and all say they resist abrasion. I like tying knots rather than using crimp beads (probably because I don't know how to crimp correctly), but I can't tie something like Accu-flex,right? So I am interested to hear what other people use, and why. Thanks for any and all advice!
