I have a question...there are quite a few different manufacturer of beading
wire out there - Soft Flex, Soft Touch(same, different lines), Accu-flex,
Beadalon and Griffen. Which one is the best to use??
I have noticed that some are less expensive than others and they are all 49
strand wire and diameter options are all pretty much the same.
I have been using soft flex. Are all the others brands just as soft and
flexible as the soft flex??
Trying to figure out if this is an area where I can save on expenses or not.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Personally, I do not skimp on my jewelry. I try to sell most of mine
and I usually do because my customers know what they are paying for. I
use Soft Flex wires and always use 49 strands. I also buy sturdy
crimps, clasps and quality beads.
If you are trying to save money, I would just suggest shopping around.
Sometimes it can be frustrating to buy from a lot of different sources
but its usually and can be worth it. Also, if your source has free
shipping after a certain amount, try your hardest to wait until you
have that amount in an order. If you can't wait, try to anticipate
your upcoming needs and order from there. I have bought more expensive
beads from sources whose shipping was cheaper or free and still saved.
If you need help, I am willing to search for you. I would just need a
list of what you are looking for and to know if you have a retailers
tax ID number.
Hope this helps!
