Guide to Choosing the Right Beadalon Bead Wire

Beadalon is composed of tiny stainless steel cables coated with nylon. It's available in a variety of sizes and weights. Each type of wire has two important characteristics: number of strands and wire diameter. The number of strands determines the flexibility of the wire and the diameter determines the size and strength of the wire as well as what beads can be used.
