Charts For Wire and String

Could you tell me if there are charts out there that will tell me what size wire or string to use for any given jewelry project?

Does it go by weight of beads or just the size of the hole? Thank you for your time.

by: Christine

Hi! Thanks for your question.

Here are some links that may help:

Wire Gauge Chart: a comprehensive chart about which gauge of wire to use for what purpose

Bead Stringing Materials: has a good description of stringing cable sizes and what to use them for.

Hope that helps!
