Mandala Crafts 12 14 16 18 20 22 Gauge Anodized Jewelry Making Beading Floral Colored Aluminum Craft Wire
Size:16 Gauge | Color:Magenta
This malleable yet durable wire is perfect for wrapping, bending, and shaping. It can be easily hammered and stamped. The wire hardens nicely with a chasing hammer. The bright and fine anodized color does not flake off when being bent or smashed as long as coated tools are used. The moldable wire bends easily but is stiff and strong enough to hold its shape once you learn how to build it well. It can be straightened or bent with hands and be cut with scissors or wire cutters easily.
The creative uses of this lightweight and easy to form wire is only limited by imagination. The finger friendly and bendable characteristics makes it great to repair jewelry, start an artistic DIY project, or even for an amateur to learn how to wire wrap and shape. For jewelry making, it can be wrapped around gemstones or made into earrings, necklaces, bracelets, or chainmaille. For crafting, this hobby craft wire can be shaped into wreaths, hangers, coasters, picture frames & holders, sun catchers, sculptures, napkin rings, letters, mesh, ornaments, bird feeders, doll frames, and decorative embellishments. It can also be used in costume making or as supporting brim for sunhats. Other applications include fence repairs, floral arrangements, or even yard art creations.
The wire has a broad AWG gauge selection including some hard to find ones. The packing length is about three times of the industry standard but the price is only a fraction of it.
