I have a quick question, do you use soft flex or wire when you make the necklace portion of your designs? If wire, what gauge? Thanks
Answer: I never string the necklace portion with regular wire, it can easily snap and it doesn't have much flexibility.
To string necklaces, I use Nylon Coated Stringing Wire (soft flexible wire). I prefer to use Professional 49 strands (because it has greater flexibility). The thicker the wire, the heavier the necklace can be. I use between 0.018 for slighly heavier necklaces and 0.013 for lighter pieces. The brand I'm currently using right now is Beadalon, but I don't personally have a preference for this or that brand.
