I’m designing a necklace using semi precious stone rondelles. The
client is very active, physically, and has expressed concern that
the necklace might catch on something, snap, and scatter beads
everywhere. So I’m thinking of stringing it on foxtail braid, and
soldering a ring on the end of the braid. What’s the best way to
accomplish this without damaging the stone beads closest to the
solder point? Should I use sterling beads for the last half inch?
What alternatives might I consider to give the client piece of mind
about preventing a bead fling free-for-all?
Thanks for any suggestions
