In my experience, this is the best product to use for stringing projects. It does not kink easily and is very strong. Be sure to use the appropriate diameter for your beads. For example, you do not want to use the .014 for heavy gemstones.
I do have a few tricks for crimping. For the 0.014, I will put an additional short piece of wire in the crimp to help it fill the crimp's bead cavity prior to crimping. This gives the crimp more to hold on to. It is not necessary to do this on the larger diameter wire. For best results, always use a crimp tool. The .024 will require the large crimp tool and a larger crimp bead.
