Very Useful Chart for Jewelry Wire

By on Thursday, May 12, 2016 4 Comments

It's wonderful to have all sorts of jewelry making resources on the internet.  Less wonderful is the non-standard way of expressing jewelry wire dimensions.  I'm still on gauge but others use metric and imperial measurements.  So a fine applause for the  House of Gems infographic or chart on all things wire. Click on the link to get the full chart.


I found the first part of the chart so useful as it is so annoying to have to convert units.  Yes, even with a handy app!

The rest of the chart covers shape, harness and the different types of metal used with their relative uses and benefits.

I also wrote about Perri Jackson's useful charts which show how much wire is needed for wire coils.
