I want to string some beads for outdoors. What wire could I use that would not rust? Thanks
String beads onto large diameter Accu-Flex® beading wire (0.024-inch 7 strand variety) for a secure non-rusting strand of beads. Secure the ends with crimp tubes. If you want to make a linked chain of beads with wire that will not rust, use a large gauge of either Zebra Wire™ or color-coated aluminum wire. Each of these wires come in many colors and are non-ferrous metals, so are not susceptible to rusting.
