    Hello!

    Hi there, to be honest it really depends on the design you are going for...maybe you could provide me with further info?There are so many types of wires you could use...

      beadalon wire 7 strand is a good start, tiger tail also comes in 7 strand and I actually thought they were the same thing until recently, but there is a bit of brand snobbery going on.

      Basically it's really string flexible wire with a plastic coating, use crimps to secure it to your clasps etc and to also hold beads in place if you like.

      Hope that helps

                I generally use Tigertail wire. It is both strong and versatile
