The only place it breaks is where a middle line has to cross the mandrel hole.
Pretty cool, huh?
I wrote a bunch about the labyrinth idea yesterday, or at least I wrote some and posted a bunch of links so you could read more if you wanted. I really like this idea for beads, even though I know it has been "done" (and done very well) by other current bead artists (I'm thinking of Teresa from Lavender Creek, and I think JC Herrell probably has done it, too). . . in fact, knowing that plenty of other people have done it made me wait a long time to actually explore this idea. The thing is, when I run across one of those ideas while googling/reading/exploring spiritual or cultural topics, that's when my mind gives it the "okay". That's when I see the big picture and realize that it isn't a topic that any single person would claim as solely their own. Once I can see that, then the ideas come and I can make my own version. And just let me say, hey, memorizing the path and then trying to do it with as long of a stringer as possible is a challenge that appeals to me. . . this is fun!
