Artistic Wire is the most extensive line of permanently colored copper wire for jewelry and crafts. The wire has an exclusive enamel coating that is available with a glossy metallic finish, or in a matte finish. The coating is engineered to resist tarnishing, chipping, and peeling and to stand up to coiling, spiral making, twisting, wrapping, and other wire working techniques.

It turns out that this is working quite well for me. I am only wanting to put one small glass bead on each eye pin (I am making a multistrand chain necklace with beads on eye pins). I have been somewhat obsessed with vintage Japanese drops for awhile and am trying to create a similar look (albeit with Czech glass, since I have more of that on hand). This wire is great for that.
It is a bit thin, at 24 gauge, but for holding just a single glass bead, it is perfectly strong enough. I am not sure that if you made the type of necklace I'm working on and then tugged on it really hard, that the wire would hold, but it certainly will under normal wear conditions (I've already completed one strand and tried it on for size).
This is very easy to work with; I'm easily able to make loops in it that stay in place using simple round nose pliers, and it cuts easily with most jewelry wire cutters. It matches the chain I bought in color and I like using this instead of real eye pins because I feel there is less wire waste -- I can cut the wire to the length I need, whereas with commercial eye pins, I might have to trim some excess off.
This also strikes me as being good for wire-wrapping (though *I* am not good at wire wrapping yet). It's thin enough to get it to do what you want, but it holds its shape. I played around with this and a Coiling Gizmo a bit and it went pretty well, for example.
So, if you are looking for thin wire for making eye pins or wire wrapping, this is easy to work with and looks pretty good.
