This is an excellent product that I've used for making one of a kind necklaces (using semi-precious gemstones) that require this product due to the weights of some of the heavier beads. The strength of the steel wire more than compensates for extending the life of the necklaces. I had one client who experienced constant breakage of her necklace because she's worn it so much and I kept using a different product to re-string the beads. I finally got tired of doing this, so I decided to use some of the Soft Flex product that I had at the time, and this has been a few years ago--haven't heard from her since!!! I highly recommend this product to anyone who does beadwork in any medium due to the years of life it will add to any piece.

Great product and I love using it for all my beading projects. I will order again in the future.
I now have three different thicknesses of this beading wire and I LOVE them all!!
I love to use the fine diameter in this beading wire when my designs include more delicate gemstones and crystals where I want a nice draping flow. The strength and various colors make designing easier. I recommend it. I also like that is made in the US.
I used the Soft Touch Premium Beading Wire for my fly fishing leader because the bluefish here have very sharp and strong teeth. The Soft Touch Premium Beading Wire is very strong and thin so the fish are not scared away by a heavy gage traditional wire leader. Also it is very easy to tie fishing knots. You should advertise Soft Touch Premium Beading Wire as a fishing accessory through Bass Pro Shops!!
A wonderful smaller size diameter wire. Super drape and STRONG !
After finding the Soft Flex company and trying their wire, I never buy wire or crimps from anywhere else. After spending a lot of time beading a necklace I made and picked it up to show my husband, the wire broke and all the beads scattered everywhere. Then I found Soft Flex. No mater what I make now, the wire never breaks and also, no wire get "bent" the wrong way to mess up the piece I'm beading. Love this wire!
Love this wire. Very strong but soft and flexible. My long strand of beading felt like it was on string but I knew it wouldn't break if I knotted the center. It was the perfect solution to this particular beading project!
I love using this wire with the macrame' board.
Your wire is my go to favorite. Easy to work with, great colors & metallics, most useful diameters, plays well with crimps even.
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!
