Strong Necklace Thread

Category Jewelry

Tired of your necklace breaking? Restring it with fishing line. Fishing line is very strong and inexpensive.

Failing that (you might not have any fishing line handy) try using Dental Floss - it works just the same, it's very cheap and VERY strong too!

Don't use monofilament fishing line!!(That's the cheap stuff). It stretches, and degrades. The GSP lines (Fireline, Power Pro, Spiderline Fusion) are good for bead stringing, but not cheap.

And don't use dental floss except as an emergency repair (and flossing, of course). It also "degrades" fairly rapidly, and if you use the "flavored' type, it can attract ants.... Beading thread (Nymo) isn't all that expensive-- about $1.50 for a bobbin of it. With the popularity of beading these days, it's easy to get the right materials to do the job correctly-- don't be "penny wise and pound foolish". Instructions for bead stringing can be found at www.beadwork.about.com -- free!

NO! I MAKE JEWELRY, & if you want the necklace to last (especially if you want to hand it down to your daughter or something), use jewelry wire from your local craft store - something with a nylon coating.

UV rays break down fishing wire, & your necklace will just end up busting again! BeadFusion.com has great how-tos.
