SoftFlex Jewelry Wire
Beading wire is as important a component to your finished piece of jewelry as your findings or beads. As such, it is important to use high quality products to ensure your jewelry will stand the test of time. We have tried most every product on the market, and have reached the conclusion that not all beading wire is equal, and typically, you get what you pay for with low cost, low quality products. In our experience, SoftFlex and Beadalon products have been the best, most consistent products available, continually advancing their product ines in terms of design and functionality. We are pleased to offer you lines of wire from both companies, we're sure you'll be satisfied with either product.
A quick note about our beads whe selecting wire: typical Murano glass beads will have a hole approximately 1mm in diameter and will work well with beading wire that is .024", .019", .018", .015", .014", .013", .012", .010". Some of our beads have larger holes and this will usually be noted on the product description. When using a number of heavy beads on a single piece, we recommend a larger diameter wire, such as a .024". Soft Flex wire is availabe in .010", .014", .019", and .024" diameter wires in 7, 21, and 49 strands.
