To select the best size wire, determine the size of the beads' hole (often measured in millimeters) and then convert the wire gauge to millimeters to match, allowing for some wiggle room so the wire will slide through the beads easily yet not so much room the beads wobble.
If you're working with multiple size bead holes, choose the wire that fits the smallest size then slide a bugle bead, crimp bead or seed bead onto the wire, to fit inside the bead with larger holes. This will stabilize them.
