0.6mm Copper Wire – 1


22 gauge copper jewellery wire

SKU: BS02033 Categories: , ,


Our 0.6mm Copper Wire is 100% copper wire. Copper is a soft metal and this round 0.6mm diameter wire is easy to use as it is soft and kind to your fingers. As with all wire it can be hardened by simply handling it.

To harden this wire you simply just run the wire through your fingers several times. If your fingers complain (which they probably will until they’ve hardened themselves!) use a pair of nylon jawed pliers. We recommend these pliers if you are going to do a lot of wire work. The nylon jaws grip the wire without marking the wire. Running wire through the jaws will harden the wire making it stiffer and hold shapes much better. There are different wire work tools available to help you create unique wire jewellery. You may like to try the wire straightener?

What you can do with 0.6mm copper wire

The 0.6mm copper wire is a popular diameter to use when wire wrapping. It can still be used to wrap around another, thicker diameter for symmetry or decoration. This diameter wire is also thick enough for thinner diameters to wrap around it without distortion. Our headpins and eyepins are 0.7mm copper wire that has been hardened and plated. Using 0.6mm copper wire is an ideal diameter to make your own jewellery findings, for example, your own headpins and eyepins.

Each pack is approximately 10 metres in length. We also sell this wire in a 10 pack, for those who need a large quantity! This is part of a range of diameters we stock in copper from 0.4mm to 1.0mm.

In a lot of projects, especially from the USA, the wire is label as a gauge. The 0.4mm copper craft wire we stock is also known as 26 gauge wire.
