Wire is a wonderful material for making jewelry. It can be used by itself to form earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets. Wire can also be used with beads and stones to create beautiful jewelry designs. Metalsmiths use wire to create components such as jump rings and clasps, and pieces of wire are also soldered together to build cuff bracelets and pendants. However, you can make a large variety of jewelry by simply bending wire into various shapes and connecting these shapes together. Sizes of Wire Wire comes in different size gauges. The larger the gauge number, the smaller diameter the wire. So, a 26 gauge piece of wire is thinner than a 16 gauge piece. Gauge Recommendations: 14 to 26 gauge for simple wire bending projects.
