If you are interested in purchasing this wire I say buy with confidence. I have used Lenka’s wire for several projects. From Bobbin Lace and Needle Lace to Wire Wrapping Jewelry pieces. The colors of the wire lend well to pairings with brass, copper, and silver wire. I was a purist who did Wire Wrapping projects in only copper or silver. Have fun adding a color to compliment your cabochon. I took the plunge and have received many compliments on the results!
Thank you, Karen, I appreciate your feedback. Knowing that you are an experienced lacemaker, it is great to hear that this wire inspired you to include colour and explore its possibilities in original lace design. I look forward seeing the new pieces!
Regarding mixing enamelled copper wires with raw copper, bronze and silver – these metals, when untreated, will naturally tarnish and will need to be cleaned once in the while. Gentle, non-abrasive cleaning methods will not harm enamelled copper wires, and therefore it is possible to pair them with tarnishing wires.
Hi Lenka,You new post looks really nice. Now you’ve got me thinking about getting more supplies!!! Donna.
