Accu-Flex® beading wire is highly recommended, as it is a kink-resistant strong beading wire that still offers flexibility when worn. It's available in a variety of diameters and colors to suit most any jewelry-making needs.

If you prefer to use an elastic cording, I would suggest using PowerCord™ No-Fray Elastic Bead Stringing cord, which is available in five different sizes: 0.5mm, 0.8mm, 1mm, 1.5mm, and 2mm. This elastic cord is simple to use. When using PowerCord, I suggest finishing the ends with a surgeon's knot.
