0.8mm gold plated wire is a substantial gauge craft wire that holds it’s shape well. Use the 0.8mm diameter wire for making your own findings. Creating small toggles, loop and hook clasps and small pendants work well with this diameter.

0.8mm gold plated wire can be manipulated with your fingers for a short time but you are best using nylon jawed pliers. Nylon jawed pliers will help work harden the wire, making it stiffer and harder, holding it’s shape better.

We have some useful videos on wirework on our video gallery page or through our YouTube channel. Watch how to make your own jump rings, really useful for chainmaille jewellery.
