I agree with Sandi - I wouldn't even think of trying to knot 19
strand Beadalon. If you want to stick with Beadalon. I'd suggest
using 49 strand. SoftTouch by SoftFlex is touted as being so
flexible, pearls can be strung and knotted as if using silk.
BUT there's another alternative. You can use.8 mm sterling beading
chain and the Magical Crimp Forming Tool - you put a 2x2mm sterling
tube crimp in the places that you would knot and use the Magical
tool - gently - to make a perfectly round BEAD that will hold the
other beads in place. Very classy looking! Our instructor made a
couple of necklaces like this for display with Swarovski crystals and
the customers go crazy for them!
