Flex-rite 49-Strand 0.014" 30ft Gold Satin


Strong yet supple, this beading cable is composed of 49 stainless steel microwires plated with copper then coated with nylon for a smooth and tarnish-resistant finish. Teacher and designer Dawn Pietrusko in our Baltimore store says: "Using the appropriate sized beading wire is key to a successful project. If you put heavy beads on the 0.014" diameter wire it could break, but if your beads are too light for the heavier cables, your piece won’t drape in a pleasing manner."

The 0.014" Flex-rite is rated at 13 lb. test strength. Note that this is not the "weight it can hold" but rather the force it would take to break it. This stringing material is best for small glass beads including size 11° seed beads, most gemstones except the tiniest pearls and some small faceted stones and briolettes. It works well for smaller organics such as wood, shell, horn and bone and small metal beads. Does not require a needle. Finish with crimps.

The gold color can enhance the look or transparent or semi-transparent glass or stone beads, coordinates well with our gold beads, findings, and chains, and can produce unusual effects when used as a design element in "floating bead or illusion necklaces" where the cording shows. If the color is not important to you check out some of our other cable wires such as Beadalon, SoftFlex and SoftTouch.
