22 gauge wires for wrapping
very pleased! We tried 20 gauge first, and I was teaching teenagers how to create wire wrapped rings for their friends, they wanted some personalized gifts for special gifts. The 22 gauge gives a more refined look when using dainty stones. 20 gauge works well for sturdy stones (like tigereye, jasper, etc). Did a side-by-side compare of Artbeads vs Artistic brand, and like them both. Look forward to working with more colors!
Very close in size to sterling
I purchased this wire to practice my wire wrapping, and since I use 22 gauge sterling a lot, I thought I would try this. Using this, I thought, would save me a lot of money over using sterling. This wire is very similar in the pliability, thickness, and strength to sterling wire, which helped me a great deal in learning what I could do with sterling wire. I was very pleased with the results, which resulted in my learning a great deal.
This wire is fabulous for any wire wrapping projects. I do wish Artbeads would carry larger quantities.
But I love Artbeads for fast shipping, quality items and customer service.
I really like using this product to do wire-wrapping. I have used several of the other colors (black, copper, and purple) as well.
