Looking for colored craft wire or bendable wire for crafts? You can use Soft Flex’s Craft Wire for a number of projects, including creating links that connect to make a beaded jewelry chain as well as in floral arrangements. It’s for this reason that it is important to choose the right craft wire for your applications.
Wire comes in a lot of different shapes and gauges:
0.6 mm gauge craft wire is a softer, thinner wire that is perfect for delicate craft projects such as wrapping smaller beads, smaller weaving, and creating vine-style twists for delicate headpieces such as tiaras.
A 0.8 mm wire is a much sturdier wire, so it makes a really good base for a wire-wrapped ring. It is really good for wire gizmo work and beading.
A 1 mm wire gauge is a much stronger and thicker wire, making it excellent for threading. If you want to make collar style necklaces, embellish large gemstones, or make sure the wire is secure, then 1 mm wire should be used.
When studying the different types of gauges, such as 18 gauge craft wire up to 28 gauge craft wire, the general rule of thumb is that the lower the number of the gauge, the thicker the wire will be. The standard shape of craft wire is round. Rounded wires are the most commonly used wires. These craft tools are usually used for link jewelry, and any type of chain link wire project.
You will also find square craft wires on the market. When you look at the wire closely, you will see that it is completely squared. Square wire is used when the wires need to sit right next to one another because it has two flat sides and two completely flat surfaces. If you put the round wire next to itself, it is only going to touch at one tiny point because the round surface against another round surface will create distance between the two pieces of wire.
