This wire is a strong and flexible bundle of seven sterling silver wires coated in nylon. It is a wonderful alternative to Tigertail. It has a breaking point of 7 pounds (3 kg), and is sterling silver in color. This is a unique product in the Beadalon line. It is a 7 strand wire, but because those wires are solid sterling silver instead of stainless steel, it has much better drape and flexibility than the other 7 strand wires. This is not meant for your traditional bead stringing projects, where the only wire you see is at the clasp. But it is ideal for any projects were exposed wire is part of the design. Because it is not as strong as the other wires in the series, we highly recommend using Sterling Silver Wire Guardians
with this product.
