Topics: Correct Beading Wire for Lampworked Beads

Q.
I am making bracelets with lampworked beads, Swarovski crystals, and bead caps. Could you please recommend the correct wire to use for this task so I can accommodate the weight of the beads? Thanks very much.

49 strand Accu-Flex® professional-quality beading wire in size 0.019 inch is a good bet for a project like this. It is very flexible, but also very strong. If the lampworked beads can accommodate a larger diameter of Accu-Flex beading wire, you could step up to the 0.024 inch size.
