I want to make some wire wrapped necklaces/bracelets with sterling and also some coloured wire I bought from the 'W' supplier. I've already got some .4 & .6 sterling and am about to do another order for some .8 and 1mm wire (all half hard). My questions are:-
- Do you use coloured wire in your designs, if so which type? I've heard of enamel coated wire? If so, would you then use plated findings? I don't mix my plated designs with sterling findings.
- I've got .8mm and 1mm on my list, would you add anything else?
- I like the look of copper, if you used copper, would you then have sterling findings, plated or make copper ones yourself (and then treat the copper to stop it tarnishing).
Would you use brass?
Thnks in advance guys. BTW, the only way I can anneal at the moment is by using the chamois leather method, as I don't have a kiln or a torch.
