SilverSilk is a delicate, lightweight material you can use as a lovely alternative to other stringing materials. Made from thin knitted wires, SilverSilk is delicately beautiful and amazingly durable. With their growing popularity, SilverSilk has released different types of knitted wire. Here we will explain to you the differences between three different types so you can decide which style of knitted chain is best for your project. Whether you like flat, capture or pearlesque, all of our SilverSilk products for give you beautiful and unique results.



Flat

The Flat jewelry chain is made from knitted wire that is knitted round, and then put through a rolling mill to flatten it. This knit is a supple, light, flexible ribbon-like mesh that is created from a permanently enameled pure copper wire. It would be perfect for making bracelets and comes in a variety of different finishes.

Capture


The original Capture knit gets its name from the six wires are knitted around a beaded chain, capturing the shimmering light reflections and strength of the chain. You could use this material to create a simple necklace or bracelet, or you could pair it with other stringing material for a cool multi-stranded idea.

Pearlesque


The beautiful Pearlesque is is similar to the Capture style. However, this type features six AB metallic threads surrounding a beaded chain on the inside, which is then covered by a third layer of knitted threads. Its three layers allow for more dimension in your designs, and the AB finish on the inside plays with the light to make this strand sparkle. Use it to make lovely necklaces and bracelets.

Hollow

Hollow SilverSilk is made from six copper wires knitted together to form a tube-like shape. Unlike the Capture SilverSilk, the knitted wire stands on its own, creating a lightweight and flexible foundation for many designs. A great base for Caspia™ beads, this stringing material can help you create striking necklace and bracelet designs.
