I have some tiny Keishi pearls. What is the lightest weight or thinnest wire I can buy for stringing?

This depends on the hole size of the pearls. Gemstones and pearls usually have smaller holes than glass beads due to the drilling process, and the hole size will vary between strands of pearls depending on the drilling by the manufacturer. Most tiny pearls will require a 26 gauge wire or smaller.
