www.zacoo.com help you choose proper wire gauge for your wire projects

  1. 1. www.zacoo.comhelp you choose proper wire gauge for your wire projectsJewelry wires are made different gauges such as 14 gauge, 16 gauge, 18gauge… and 28 gauge,well Gauge is a technical term used to describe the thickness of the wire, the lower the gaugenumber, the thicker the wire will be. Some friends are confused by gauges, and have no ideawhat wire to which projects, today I will help you solve this problem.1 Choose 26 to 28 gauge wire to make wired crochet and wired weaving creations where a verythin and flexible wire is necessary. These jewelry wires gauges can also be used to make wrappedwire creations.2 Select 22 to 24 gauge wire for making wrapped wire creations. 24 gauge wire is the standardgauge of most ready-made eye pins and head pins. These wire gauges are also used forsemi-precious beads that typically have slightly smaller holes.3 Use 20 gauge wire in all of the same applications as the 18 gauge wire. In addition to these uses,earring wires are typically made from 20 gauge wire.4 Choose 18 gauge wire to make typical jump rings, clasps, head pins, and eye pins. This gaugewire is commonly used for making wire wraps and is a good choice for jewelry making because itwill fit through most bead holes.5 Use 14 or 16 gauge wire to make thicker-than-average jump rings and clasps. You can also makeeye pins and head pins used for beads with larger holes.
