How to Make Wire Jewelry | Wire Wrapping Tutorials
Lesson 2 – Wire Gauge Sizes
When it comes to wire jewelry making, the wire is at the core foundation of the craft. We use 16 gauge, 20 gauge, and 26 gauge. The higher the number, the thinner the gauge – the smaller the number, the thicker the gauge. Copper wire is preferred for this jewelry craft since it is both strong and malleable.
In this lesson you will learn:
- What type of wires to buy and why
- The different wire gauge sizes
- Wire styles, comparing price, color, and preference
