Soft Flex Wire is constructed of either 21 or 49 micro spun, stainless steel wires woven together and then nylon coated. It is hypoallergenic, and it is the most flexible and kink resistant stainless steel stringing wire on the market today.
To attach a clasp to any nylon coated steel wire, you will need to use crimp beads (see our Metal Beads and Findings page).
The diameter you will need depends on the beads you are stringing. Choose a size that will offer you the highest strength, while allowing for the best "drape". Available in stainless steel silver color unless otherwise specified.
