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!

Very easy to use to restring wind chimes. It can be cut to a custom length, color coordinated, and lasts even in very windy conditions (steady winds at 35 mph with gusts to 50).

Softflex Heavy cable
Written by Craig Polliard on Feb 19th 2024

Bought the special pliers and 2X3 sleeves. Watch a video or two and off I went. Practiced on a couple sleeve crimps before taking to the finish connection. Just takes a lil getting use to the presure on the pliers and a nice smooth rotating application to achieve a nice round squished silver ball. If you squeeze to hard the mold gets all out of wack, nice and easy, rotate…I’m getting better at squishing not perfect but it looks fine for now. The sleeves came be used anywhere on the Softflex. I used the Heavy to loop around a jump ring and lobster clasp back thru the sleeve tighten the loop up and squeeze, nice and easy, rotate. Neckless complete…Really like this Softflex Heavy cable for rocks and minerals. Thanks..

The best wire
Written by Anne Lefebvre on Sep 29th 2021

I finally found the perfect wire for my heavy necklaces (300 to 400 grams) - I use African recycled glass beads, African brass beads and pendants, materials which can be very abrasive. This wire is just amazing. So happy with it

soft flex beading wire HEAVY

I highly recommend this beading wire. I used it to make a very heavy necklace 16mm, 14 mm, and 12mm rondels, a 27 inch necklace for a man ( me ) and the crimps hold very well. I will definitely buy again.

I love this product. I have used Softflex products exclusively for over 20 years. It enhances my work as a beader & i have total confidence in its strength. As a glassmaker any problems could result in the loss of my handmade glass.
