Beadalon 49 combines the soft, supple feel of thread with the strength and longevity of stainless steel. This bead stringing wire is the softest, most flexible product produced by Beadalon. It was designed specifically for stringing ceramic, glass, metal, stone beads, seed beads, and fresh water pearls. Beadalon 49 allows designs to drape naturally, without kinking. 49 miniature strands of stainless steel are stranded together and then nylon coated.
