What to pay attention to when buying silk thread, french wire etc


Mar 9, 2021
I just bought my first strand of freshwater pearls and am planning on making a necklace out of them. Now I do not know what to look for regarding silk thread, french wire and whatever else you need like clasps(I already have those), mainly what diameter of thread/french wire I should choose relative to the pearls drilling holes diameter. I hope you can help me with this :D
