i always use this but artbeads had a fantastic sale plus coupon!
Love this stuff, it's small enough for any beads but very sturdy and flexible.
Nice for smaller holed items
I am a tough rater/judge. The reason I didn't choose 5 beads for quality & value is I actually wished this was just ever so slightly smaller - but I needed the strength of the fine for this project as I didn't feel the very fine option in SoftTouch was strong enough for the 5 strand necklace I was creating. I had to use a bead reamer on the pearls that were near the adjoining ends so two thicknesses of the wire fit through the pearls and it was a tedious process. I am very pleased with the finished product.
This is probably the best stringing wire available in the market. The old saying goes, "You get what you paid for," and this is very true with this wire. The price is slightly higher than other wires in the market but the quality will last a lifetime. This wire is very flexible, tough, and kink-resistant. Also, the prices at Artbeads are very competitive. I purchased this same wire from Soft Touch at a local gem show, and their prices were slightly higher than Artbeads and I had to pay taxes on top of that.
