Hi, Bracelet broke at wire wrap point - which wire should I use?I have just recently started making bracelets and made one for my sister-in-law using fresh water pearls, silver spacers and 5mm Swarovski beads. The wire I used was sterling plated 26 gauge wire. I twisted the ends and added a magnetic clasp. The bracelet broke at the area I twisted. I realize it was the wrong wire to use but I'm not sure which wire I should be using. From reading other's questions I am thinking nylon coated steel cable .014, 49 strand. Is that right? Will it twist and stay twisted and not break easily?Thanks!Chris
