ARTICLE RESOURCES

The Beadalon product used for the articulation wire is a strong, nylon coated bundle of either 7-strand or 19-strand wire.  The 7-strand is what Brian uses.  Galloup recommends the 19-strand, which is slightly stronger in pound-test rating, and also more flexible.  The product is a craft beading wire available at Michaels and other craft outlets.  Rare sizes and colors need to be ordered online.

7-strand  .038mm 15lb. test  (avail. in four weights, 7-20 pound test)
19-strand  .038mm  17lb. test  (avail. in six weights 7-48 pound test)
