This wire is what I use in the majority of my designs. So far I have not found another wire that I like better. I've used this to create a necklace for my coworker who is a repeat customer. So I have to ensure I use good stuff as I see her everyday...
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 sales tax on top of that.
0.019 is the most versatile wire size for stringing in terms of strength, fit, and durability and handle just about any type of materials out there from pearls to gem beads.
