I love the SoftTouch beading wire. It is the only wire I know of with the super fine option of .010 which is needed for some of the smaller gemstone beads. I recently made a moonstone bracelet for my neice's birthday and found the .014 would not fit. Very happy to hapy the Softtouch option with its fine diameter and lovely draping. Softflex and their crimps are the best!
Soft Touch™ Wire is strong as steel and soft as silk.
Soft Touch™ Wire is a lead-free beading wire for designers that want a premium product for their designs. Soft Touch™ Wire has the softest drape on the market, your pieces will lay like they were strung on thread. Soft Touch™ Wire is constructed of either 7, 21 or 49 micro woven stainless steel wires. It is supple enough that it can be knotted and comes black and white (.010) and Premium Satin Silver. It is available in 4 diameters: .010, .014, .019, and .024. We recommend Soft Touch™ Wire for designers that want their pieces to last and eliminate the frustration of restringing.
