The Bead Shop stocks and sells a selection of tiger tail wire. This type of wire beading material is available to buy from our online shop at impressive prices. We have a wide range of stringing materials including rattail cord and Stretch Magic cord that will give you different mediums to work with to create a range of gorgeous accessories. Tiger tail is a very strong wire; the most durable that is to be used in jewellery making. It is so strong because it is made up of multiple threads of stainless steel cable that has been entwined together, and then finished off with a nylon coating to create this sturdy yet thin wire. When you are creating a design that consists of heavy beads, large beads and natural gem stones that tend to have sharper edges, tiger tail is the must have option. It will not snap or break because of rough edges as some other stringing materials would. The nature of this wire means that once you have bent it, it will stay in this shape so you have to be careful when working with it to avoid unwanted kinks. You are not able to tie it off into loops because of this, but when using crimp beads and clasps you will be able to finish off your jewellery creations with ease. Make sure to cut the tiger tail with the correct piece of equipment, such as pliers, it may not cut properly just using your kitchen scissors. This wire works really well when creating bracelets and necklaces, you may even want to have a go at creating a floating bead necklace by simply using crimp beads to give the illusion that a single bead is ‘floating’ along the tiger tail.
