what are people stringing them on?? tiger tail or silk or something
else?

Please, G-D -! NOT Tiger Tail! Screams of “Cheap”, won’t protect
the stones from abrading each other, and it WILL break! I’m old
school - I use silk. Knotted between the stones. Better drape,
professional finish. Do it right.

Good question. I’m having trouble finding something that works. I
tried using 28 gauge wire, but it’s too fat! I’m looking for 30
gauge. Smaller than that and I’m not sure it will even work.
