    There’s great skill in that Sheena and beautifully woven. There are all kinds of jewellers and the quality of work is what’s important. I’m sure it’s being well received

    Aw thanks guys. It means a lot i've started working on a red one now I've discovered that cookson is selling the brand artistic wire. Going to see how that wears in comparison to the wire I have. Noticed that differant colours are more hard wearing than others as well.

    then 90% of the time the coating will eventually wear off accordingly if the metal is soft then it will be less durable. My opinion is that most companies will be selling the same stuff and it will be mainly the price that varies.
    I was wondering about that, the black beadsmith stuff I bought is perhaps more hard wearing than the scientific wires stuff. There's no info on the net about this topic so will have to do some trial and error
