Accu-Flex Platinum Professional Quality Beading Wire consists of 49 individual strands of stainless steel wire, bundled in seven strands of seven wires each. The wires are twisted together and coated with nylon. This allows the use of a soft, flexible wire while still maintaining excellent strength. The result: a supple wire with a beautiful, natural drape that's made to last.

Shop for Platinum Quality Beading Wire


Accu-Flex Silver Professional Quality Beading Wire is made from three bundles of seven wire strands each. The wire strands are larger than those used in Accu-Flex Platinum. This results in a wire that's every bit as strong for a given diameter, but which is slightly stiffer. Very much a professional-grade wire, and a terrific value.
