French Wire (Bullion or Gimp) puts an attractive professional finish on your stringing projects. French wire protects your stringing material from abrasive metal findings. Cut between 1/4 to 1/2 inch length of french wire, pass your cord or cable strand through, then through the metal finding or clasp, then back through the ending beads or crimps. Be careful not to let your stringing material slip through the coils of the french wire. Also, check out our selection of wire guardians.
