|Wire I purchased for clasps|
|Wonderful reference on wire and links|
Also, this week Love My Art Jewelry Blog had a terrific article on wire which states that "this is the perfect basic starter heavier gauge wire for beginner smaller clasps, links, heavy jumprings, and beginning heavier wirework." I used this gauge wire to make a few sterling silver clasps this week and I am pleased with the results. This blog article has lots of good information about wire. I liked it so much that I copied and pasted it into Evernote which is a free electronic notebook that makes it easy to remember things big and small from your everyday life using your computer, phone, tablet and the web. I have been using Evernote for awhile to collect jewelry tutorials that I like all in one place.
