About the Wire

What is rolled gold? Rolled gold, or gold-filled, is a thick layer of 12k or 14k gold applied through a heat-and-pressure technique to a base metal, usually brass. This is NOT gold plate! Gold fill contains 100 times more gold than gold plate. I use 12/20 and 14/20 gold filled, which means that fully 5% of the wire is 12k or 14k gold.

What is sterling silver? Sterling silver wire is 92.5% pure silver, and 7.5% copper.

What is bronze? Bronze is an alloy of 88% copper and 12% tin.
