I'd tried to breed a Beldum that had an everstone with a Ditto(from Germany that is also a shiny) that had destiny knot, to get myself a shiny Beldum with great IVs and a perfect nature but had no luck at all.

I've been through over 100 eggs and not a single shiny appeared from hatching. Are the items I gave to the parents preventing the Masuda Method or does it depend on luck?

You're just getting unlucky. The actual chance is still over 1/1000 so keep trying

It depends on luck
The only thing that affects the shiny chance is the location in the world the parents came from. Held items do not change the shiny chance.

i assume you mean the real world location the parents came from.  the shiny charm also affects it though.
With the shiny charm, it is 1/512. Even with those odds it took me 1027 eggs to hatch a shiny Skiddo :/
I meant Held Items
