What gauge wire is best for wrapping stones?
The best gauge wire for wrapping stones is 20- gauge wire. A 20- gauge wire is easy to bend and wrap, but it will not break as easily either.
What is 22 gauge wire used for?
Here at SparkFun, we typically use 22 AWG wire for prototyping and breadboarding. When using a breadboard or PCB, solid core is perfect because it fits nicely into the holes. For other prototyping/building involving soldering, the stranded core is #1, just be sure not to let too much current run through a single wire.
What kind of wire is best for jewelry making?
22-20 gauge are good all-purpose, versatile wire sizes, thin enough to be able to string on most beads. If you use half-hard wire (or work-harden softer wire ), these gauges are also sturdy enough to hold their shape for making handmade chain, ear wires, eye pins, jump rings, and lightweight clasps.
What is 24 gauge wire used for?
In a round shape, it can be used more aggressively in the same manners as the 26- gauge above, and in a square shape 24 – gauge can be used to make frames and wire settings for smaller cabochons and faceted stones. It is also used to make individual jump rings and head pins, as well as wrapping the tops of briolettes.
