In any beading project, it's always important to ensure that the end result is a high-quality, durable item. This prevents situations where pieces of beaded jewelry are damaged or worn out. In most cases, beaded jewelry needs repair because of severed thread or damaged beads. These types of problems can be avoided if each material used in beaded jewelry are checked for strength or quality.
This is why it's important to always check the durability of the beading project's finished product. Assessing the strength and the placement of the beads is important. Some beading enthusiasts find it better to check the beadwork by looking at the potentially weakest part of the item. The benefit of knowing which part would most likely break down first is that it allows bead accessory makers to know the parts that require strengthening. This way, the beadwork will be stronger and sturdier. This method of checking and assessing each part of a beaded item should be applied to all beading projects.
Check for sharp edges on the beads that may cut through the thread and break it over time. Sometimes, the crimps, the bead hole, and the clasp may have sharp edges that need to be filed to prevent these from cutting through the thread or wire. On the other hand, loose beads are caused by crimps that have not been sufficiently tightened. Remember to flatten any loose crimps to secure the beads.
On some clasps that use springs to lock, check the locking mechanism to ensure that it fastens securely. Sometimes, though, the durability of the a piece of beaded jewelry also depends on the frequency at which it's worn. If a beaded bracelet is worn everyday, for instance, its clasp is more likely to wear out faster.
Ways to improve beading strength
To enhance the strength of a beaded item, it is best to start with durable beading items that are guaranteed to last longer. Static rope or a nylon thread is known to last longer. Buying high-quality beads is also advised, because these are less likely to crack or break. On the other hand, careful beading processes would prevent any unwanted cuts or splits that could weaken the thread.
