Topics: Coordinating Accu-Flex® Beading Wire

Q.
I am new to making jewelry. I bought some clear Accu-Flex® beading wire that has a grayish color to it. Can I use this with gold clasps and beads, or do you think it would look bad?

The wire you bought will work great for any designs with any color findings. The thing to keep in mind is that your wire will be covered by beads, with the exception of the ends. The ends are easy to disguise by stringing a small section of gold-finished French wire onto each end of your wire where it passes over the loops on your clasp or by adding gold-finished or gold-filled Accu-Guards™ to the ends of the wire where it passes over the loops on your clasp--both offer camouflage as well as extra durability to your wire.
