Soft Flex Wire is the designer's choice in bead stringing wire.

Soft Flex Wire is a lead-free beading wire for designers that demand strength and durability. Soft Flex Wire is a superior beading wire, created by beaders for beaders. Soft Flex Wire is constructed of either 21 or 49 micro woven stainless steel wires. It is supple enough that it can be knotted and comes in a wide variety of colors. It is available in 3 diameters: .014, .019, and .024. We recommend Soft Flex Wire for designers that want their pieces to last and eliminate the frustration of restringing.


Basic Usage:

.010 Very Fine - Ideal for embellishing, weaving, crocheting and stringing very small beads. We suggest finishing with 1x1mm crimps.

.014 Fine - Ideal for soft materials, seed beads and fresh water pearls. We suggest finishing with 2x2mm crimps.

.019 Medium - Ideal all purpose wire. Great with glass, mineral, and metal beads. We suggest finishing with 2x2mm crimps.

.024 Heavy - Ideal for abrasive materials, large stones, lamp work and bracelets. We suggest finishing with 2x3mm crimps.


Recycle us! Our empty spools can be repurposed as bead trays. Before stringing your next design, place your beads into an upside down spool. They are perfect for containing your beads for each project. Or, tear off the label and toss your unwanted spools in a recycle bin. All stainless steel used in the construction of Soft Flex products is 100% recyclable. Our nylon coating is derived from renewable resources and can be recycled. Think green!

Soft flex wire
Written by Jan Durand on Nov 8th 2023

I love soft flex wire. I buy copper color because it goes so well with the ethnic beads and colorful semi precious gems that I work with! Always 100 ft and I just purchased 2 rolls. Thank you! Jan

I love the strength and flexibility of Soft Flex beading wires, you wouldn't think it was stainless steel by the way it drapes almost like silk. And it only takes about two weeks to arrive in the UK from the USA

I have used this beading wire for years and am very happy with it. I ordered a larger size roll this time since I used it so much in my delicate designs. Great product. Great customer service.

THE Best Beading Wire
Written by Michael Knight on Apr 5th 2023

I've tried them all and have found Soft Flex to be the best, it drapes like silk, it's super strong and easy to work with. I like the fine diameter best, the longer lengths and the range of colours. This is the only beading wire I will be using from now on, especially as it only took a few days to be delivered to the UK from the USA.

Oh gosh, it’s a great product, but I have arthritic hands and I find it very difficult to hold onto. I guess I’m just stuck with the medium wire it is easier for my hands. I have no complaints of any of the products their quality is outstanding.

Softflex is the best beading product available. Strong, flexible, and long lasting. I will only use Softflex when I design my jewelry. Everything else, in my mind, is just "crap."

SOFT FLEX beading wire HEAVY
Written by Ray Welch on Oct 21st 2020

What can I say , SOFT FLEX quality speaks for itself. "Great" is the word that comes to mind. Use the 3mmx2mm hole crimp and you can't go wrong. I use it on petrified wood beading and the HEAVY works very well on this heavy bead. I highly recommend it.

Love Soft Flex
Written by Ljyw on Feb 19th 2019

Love that this wire is strong, yet very easy to work with. Love the color variations which allow me to either conceal the wire using matching findings or enhance the coloring of translucent beads. Your 49 and 21 strand wires are my permanent go to!

This is my go-to wire for most of my designs. I only sell this brand of beading wire in my store, and I teach my students the importance of quality vs price of the cheaper wires. I love your beading wires, and I love you as a company!

Softflex Fine - .014 wire
Written by Betsy on Jul 6th 2018

Had a ordered a small spool to use for a necklace project. I broke into the package as I was working with some tiny tourmaline and peridot rondell's that were too small for the .019. (The .019 is my go to beading wire.) The .014 worked perfectly so I had to purcahse a full 30 ft spool for working with pearls and other small hole beads. Very happy!
