This brass French wire protects the bead cord from damage and extends the life of the jewelry, while the white finish is a good color match for white-metal clasps, creating a seamless look in strung jewelry. This assortment contains five different diameters of French wire, suitable for wire, fiber and leather cords. Base-metal French wire (bullion) reinforces bead cord where it passes through clasp components. Clip off a short length of the coiled wire and pass your stringing material through the coil then through your clasp component, and finally back through your strand to finish. The coil will shape itself to the ring on the clasp, protecting the cord against friction and wear. Use yellow-finish wire with yellow metals; use white-finish wire with white metals.
• This product is fragile; it cannot retain its coiled shape if pulled or stretched.
