Steel, Silver Plate and Copper Wire for Jewellery Making – Perfect For Beginners

Base metals have an increased reactivity level, meaning that they’re easier to work. And they’re available at lower prices than many precious metals. These benefits make them great for a whole range of uses.

We offer base metal sheets in a variety of sizes. So, whether you’re a beginner looking to get to grips with basic techniques or you’re at a higher level and want to experiment by crafting jewellery prototypes, you’ll find our brass, copper and aluminium sheet very useful and very versatile.

You can also incorporate the base metal products in our range into your final designs. Our base metal clay, steel findings, copper blanks, and antique-style brass findings provide the perfect foundations for a piece created from scratch, and are perfect for putting the final touches to a piece too.

Want to make a real statement? We sell base metal findings set with stones in lots of eye-catching shapes. Use them to craft a stunningly unique piece for yourself or as a gift for friends or family. Order from our base metal range before 3PM today and you can choose next day delivery.
