Seven-strand beading wire from Beadalon is a great all-purpose stringing cable (a.k.a. tigertail) for a wide variety of jewelry projects. Find several sizes of 7-strand cable from approximately 23-gauge to 30-gauge (the larger the gauge number, the thinner the beading wire).
Bead Ready stringing kits contain everything you need (except the tools) to turn your strand of gemstones, glass beads, or other favorite beads into a finished necklace, bracelet or anklet. Use with EZ-Crimp Pliers or Standard Crimp pliers, and a cable nipper. The thin 0.015" diameter beading cable is perfect for most 3-10mm beads, but might not work for tiny gemstones and pearls, which frequently have teensy holes. If you have very large, heavy, or rough beads (such as trade beads or lava stone), we suggest heavier beading cable such as Soft Flex Extreme Beading Wire or 49-Strand Beadalon.
