Topics: Stringing Glass Beads

Q.
What type of string or cord should I use for glass beads? I have glass bunnies and other beads but don't know how to get started for a bracelet or necklace. Help!!

Accu-Flex® beading wire is one of the strongest and most flexible materials to use for stringing glass beads. The rough holes of glass beads won't fray this nylon-coated stainless steel wire and will offer a nice drape.

Accu-Flex comes in a wide assortment of colors, so you can choose to go neutral, allowing your bead color to remain relatively the same, or add a color which may slightly show through transparent beads, creating a unique look.

To finish this type of wire you need to use crimp beads and crimping pliers or chain-nose pliers to attach a clasp. Follow the ''How to Crimp a Crimp Bead'' how-to video and illustrated instructions to learn how to do this technique.
