(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company®, presents new high-end vermeil and sterling silver necklace wires with patented friction clasps.

Created using sterling silver and vermeil wire that has been twisted, woven or coiled into a mesh, these intriguing neckwires are stunning when showcasing artisan beads, pendants and popular large-hole beads, and look simply elegant when worn alone.

Each precious metal neckwire is finished with a friction clasp (with the exception of the .5mm twisted 20-strand neckwire). This patented design is comprised of a long, curved tube on one end of the neckwire that slides into the opposing tube, using its own weight and tension to stay in place. Popular Dione large-hole beads, focals with large built-in loops and large-hole bails slide directly over the friction clasp onto the chain. Neckwires are a versatile design component, easily becoming a high-end staple accessory that converts into various styles whether worn alone, stacked in layers or designed with a selection of beads, focals and pendants.
