Topics: Using French Wire

What is French wire and how do you use it?

French wire, or bullion, is a coil of fine wire available in gold and silver finishes and precious metals. It's used to cover thread as it passes over a clasp or finding. Using French wire protects your thread from abrading, and it also hides your thread or wire so it doesn't detract from the metal of the finding. This gives your creation a professional finish.

You can also use French wire over Accu-Flex® Professional Quality Beading Wire if you want it to blend in with your design.
