Topics: Lanyard Stringing Material

Q.
I have made and sold over 50 beaded lanyards since November. Now all of a sudden people are coming back because they have broken. I used Accu-Flex® beading wire 7 strand 0.019 clear for stringing. Do you have any suggestions for something stronger? I have a large order coming up and really don't want to restring.

Lanyards get a lot of hard use. Accu-Flex® Professional Quality Beading Wire comes in different "weights" which is a combination of the diameter of the wire used and the strand count--the more strands that make up the wire, the stronger the wire. The larger the diameter of the wire, the more weight it can hold. The 0.024-inch, 49 strand Accu-Flex professional-quality beading wire is a larger diameter wire with a larger number of strands that is able to withstand more aggressive use. You may need to use a smaller Accu-Flex wire for beads, pearls and crystals that have a smaller bead hole. This should get your lanyard business back on track in no time!
