Sterling Silver plated size .014", 30 foot spool.
Soft Flex Emtreme premium stringing wire makes stringing jewelry a breeze. It is stiff enough that no needle is required but supple enough to maintain drape. Use crimp beads to fasten a clasp onto the ends.
Soft Flex wire is available in four sizes. Drape, strength, and kink-resistance are determined by the number of wires that are encased in nylon; more wires produce better performance.
