Pattern wire is fun, versatile, and easy to create with. We sell it in heavier gauges, making it strong and durable for a whole array of jewelry projects. When I first began playing with pattern wire I made bangles, earrings and a tube bezeled ear cuff, just to feel it out and find it’s limitations. The only issue I had was cutting it, since the wire cutters in the Halstead studio weren’t strong enough, but that was easily solved with a jewelers saw. Grab some pattern wire and have some fun, I sure did!
