Description
 

French Wire comes in four sizes, Fine, Medium, Heavy and X-Heavy.  It is fine guage coiled wire that acts as a safeguard to prevent clasps from "wearing on" or "cutting through" silk and other bead cords.  It also provides a nicer, more professional appearance to your finished piece.

Depending on the size of the jump ring or clasp, use approximately 1/8" to 3/8" (3mm-9mm) on knotted or unknotted strands, adjusting length longer or shorter to suit your design .  Cut two equal lenghts of French Wire so both ends match.  The proper size French Wire should slide easily, but not loosely, on the stringing material.
