  1. Interesting stuff!

    I have a really simple question, but the answer has become elusive. When Recently I bought several strings of corals and other beads in Italy which looked beautiful but have fallen apart. Heavy beads; cheap strings! I know I can restring these necklaces myself but I can’t find sturdy string with clasps. Jewelry stores don’t have them. Where do I go in Manhattan?

    Happy New Year!
    Yes, you can get beading *wire* at any of the local bead stores. There is Softflex (I usually use the 49-strand .19 size – it is a medium weight but is very strong) and there is also a line produced by Beadalon. One of the larger selections of beading wire can be found at Beads World on Broadway btw 37th & 38th Sts — and 6th Ave (just a block over has quite a few bead stores between 37th and 38th. Check out my list of NYC jewelry-supply stores at the top of my blog. If I had to bet, the best supply of beading wire, at very competitive prices would be found at Metalliferous, on W.46th St. The staff there might even be able to give you some guidance on stringing your beads. Good luck!
