This page is to explain in depth all materials used in my work.
- 14K Gold - To make the pieces more affordable, we use 14K-gold heavy-plated copper core wire in our pieces. Upon request, we can work with solid 14K gold as well. Please contact us for details and quotes.
- Silver – Bright silver is a silver plated copper core wire. / Darker silver is tin copper core wire. I use the tin version to avoid the nickle typically used in dark silver.
- Brass- 100% pure brass wire.
- Color- All colors are an enameled copper core wire.
- Antique Bronze- The wire is a copper core color wire.
- Silver / White Gold- The chain is a white gold plated brass chain. Using white gold for the plating avoids nickle typically used to create darker silver chains.
