49 strands beading wire. It is made in the USA. It has 49 strands of wire twisted together and nylon covered. It is very strong and flexible. You can string necklaces or bracelets with it. C-flex beading wire is available in .012, .015 and .018 inch diameter. We carry the clear color which is actually grey.
This beading wire is not used to make knots. You need 2mm crimp beads, a clasp such as a lobster claw and a soldered jumpring, or a toogle clasp.
.012 is a size that works well with small hole beads like seed beads size 11/0 and 15/0, 4mm pearls or smaller, as well as some semi-precious rondelles and teardrops. (This size is more expensive than the other sizes)
.015 is a size that works with 4mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm beads. Seed beads size 11/0, 8/0 and bigger.
.018 is a size that works with 12mm and bigger beads.
Tip.- I usually cut at least 4 extra inches longer than your desired lenght because you will need to go back with it by the clasp into about an inch of beads.
If you are using beads bigger than a quarter beads that are heavy, I would get a different brand beading wire called Softflex .019 or .024. I also use 2 crimp beads on each side too.
