  • Beadalon & Nickel

    Does anyone know if beadalon contains nickel? I have a piece of jewellery to make for someone who is allergic to it. I am using st silver findings, but not sure on the thread.

    I would appreciate any help

    Many thanks

    Interesting point and one without an easy answer it seems. Beadalon do have a question page, you could try asking there. Or could you use something else? ie. illusion cord, fishing line etc. which definitely won't have nickel.
    lol

      I did think that about but I am really not a fan of illusion wire

        you can get sterling silver soft flex......

        I think beadalon is made using stainless steel and nylon, so it should be ok.

          Beadalon wire (and other brands) are made from nylon coated twisted steel, and there's no nickel in steel, so you're OK.
