I have my own comfort zone as far as beading wire sizes go. But the Confetti NecklaceTutorial by Jamie Hogsett over at Softflex made me rethink about my habit of just getting the 0.014" beading size.
As the designer demonstrates, the thick beading wire can be left exposed with loose wire coiling accents.
Also note how she created what looks like a large 4-way beaded focal. It's actually a multiple wrapped loop created from all the combined black and silver beaded twisted wire. As this wrapped loop is wire, the beading wire can pass through it through the sides. Clever!
