Topics: Colored Beading Wire

I am pretty new at jewelry-making. I bought some wire to make a necklace. It is the grey silver-colored wire. Can I use this wire with gold beads and clasp, or do you think it will look bad?

For most designs, the wire will be covered by the beads, with the exception of the ends, and the ends are easy to disguise by using French wire (also called ''bullion'') or Accu-Guard™ wire protectors in the metal finish that matches your beads and other findings in your design.

Beading wire such as Accu-Flex beading wire of any color works great for designs with components of any color or finish. And for designs where the wire will be visible, you'll be pleased to see that Accu-Flex beading wire comes in wide range of colors and finishes. You can choose your wire by color and make your design really shine.
