I'm going to make 2- and 3-strand necklaces with 12 and 14mm beads. I haven't done this before. What size or weight Accu-Flex® wire do I use?
Depending on the size of the hole in the beads, I would recommend 0.024 or 0.019 size--they are the strongest of all the sizes of Accu-Flex® beading wire. I would also suggest you use 49 strand as it is the most flexible, offering the nicest drape.
