What does ''strand count'' mean?
- Jana
Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire is made up of many tiny strands of wire, twisted together and coated for strength and varying degrees of flexibility and drape. The strand count measures the number of strands bundled into the beading wire.

Accu-Flex is available in 7, 19, 21 and 49 strand counts. The higher the strand count, the more flexible the wire.
