Question beaded drumstick

I recently started doing peyote stitch beadwork, and was wondering if anyone can help me out. I beaded a drumstick for my brother using size 13 czech cut beads with nymo thread. I beaded directly around the stick using peyote stitch. Well, the first time he sang with the beaded stick, the beadwork started coming apart near the head of the stick. Is this because the nymo thread is not strong enough to withstand the repeated vibrations from striking the drum? Should I try using a more flexible thread that will give a little, or a stronger type thread? Or is something else the problem? I appreciate any suggestions.
