With beading wire cable in general, more strands = more flexibility, and thicker diameter = stronger, able to carry more weight. However, the coating and underlying material also have an effect. The Soft Flex company researched the ideal materials, weights and construction, and the result is this finely honed selection of beading wire for stringing and beadweaving.
