Beadalon 7 is flexible and is best used for heavy beads. The larger diameter wire will withstand abrasion much better than smaller sizes and provide the added strength needed for stringing larger, heavier beads or beads that have expanded or somewhat irregular drill holes.
Use Beadalon crimp #2 with diameters 0.024 and 0.026″. Use Beadalon crimp #1 with diameters 0.010 to 0.021″.
