Let's talk about broken beaded jewelry. Jewelry by virtue of being beaded, is delicate and should be handled with the same care that you would give any fine jewelry. Jewelry is bound to break when you catch it on a cabinet, it gets stretched out, you drop it, over time the wire wears out, the possibilities are endless!
Gemstones are normally hand cut and some have sharp edges this too can bring wear and tear to your handmade jewelry.
If your beaded jewelry happens to break, please collect as much of it as you can. You can use tape to prevent the remaining beads from falling off the wire. Place your beads and your broken jewelry in a sealed bag.
I recommend that beaded jewelry be restrung and inspected every 1-2 years.
