  • Now MY bracelets have fell apart !!!

    I just dont know what iv done wrong here. I made a bracelet with 7 glass beads, some silver spacer beads and i used Beadalon, Silver coloured bead stringing wire. 0.15" with a break limit of 10ibs. I gave it to my sister in law for her birthday and its fell apart twice now! First time, the wire had snapped in the middle! And iv no idea what happened the second time as half of it was lost when it dropped.
    Im thinking that there might have been a sharp bead that rubbed the wire and broke it? Or should i have used different wire? I just used the silver stuff as i thought it looked pretty and had a good break limit.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    I would guess its probably a sharp bead. Sometimes I use a double layer of beadalon if the beads are heavy like agate or quartz as I'm always worried this is ging to happen. Selina
