Recently I bought an expensive ancient Egyptian mummy beads necklace for my wife. As with beaded necklaces, you don't have to wait long for them to break. And then you get the scene where everyone is looking for lost beads on the floor and you never find them all back.

Being an inventor, I wanted to find out how to make necklaces guaranteed unbreakable. After experimenting and testing different beading threads, I have found a method to make unbreakable beaded necklaces.

Use only stainless-steel coated beading wire

I tested all kind of wires; they all broke pretty quickly. The only beading wire that is strong enough is stainless steel coated beading wire. This wire is not very flexible but with a thickness of 0.45mm it is just flexible enough.

The stainless-steel coated beading wire that I have used consists of 3 layers:

  • Stainless steel wire (7x) right rotating
  • Stainless steel wire (13x) left turning
  • Thin nylon coating

Use knots instead of crimp beads and tubes

Crimp beads are not strong enough for making unbreakable joints, and not at all suitable for the slippery coated beading wires. At this image you can see how to make the knot:
