I would like some advice regarding the knitted sterling silver
necklace I’m making. I’m adding Delica beads between each stitch.
When I’m finished, I usually draw the necklace through a draw plate to
compress the tube to 3/16". I’ve tried this before with Iolite beads
in the stitches and found that after drawing the necklace down, many
of the beads were “squished” inside the loops, preventing them from
being seen from the outside. Does this mean that I shouldn’t draw the
necklace down this far, or at all?
