7 Strand Acculon jewelry wire is widely used for the majority of all beads, and 7 strand beading wires are the most inexpensive, commonly used beading wires. We have diameters that will work for whatever your needs may be, from the smallest seed beads to beads that have large abrasive holes. 7 Strand Acculon will hold it's shape well, and will be slightly more flexible than the 3 Strand Acculon. If you are looking for a beading wire that has a better drape, you will either want to try the 21 Strand or 49 Strand Acculon
Acculon 7 Strand is commonly referred to as Tiger Tail because it is fairly stiff, but it still is very durable. The more strands of stainless steel that are wound together, the more flexibility the wire will have.
Acculon 7 Strand is made by tightly stranding 7 stainless steel wires together where there is one core wire running down the center while six other wires wrap around the core wire. The wire is then stress relieved to relax the wire and add to it's flexibility. This all takes place before the wire is coated in FDA approved nylon. This nylon is specifically designed to resisted abrasive beads while also making it completely safe for bodily contact.
