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!
While gallery wire is necessary, it definitely doesn’t need to be boring. We’ve really bulked up our gallery wire section with the width ranging from 2.5mm to 18mm. Go small or big, we have you covered!
