Wirelace is a ribbon woven with very fine wires of brass, copper or aluminum and bonded with an enamel coating to create a variety of non-tarnishing stunning colours.
• expand it to create lacy waves about 3 times its width
• use it flat like ribbon
• insert beads, string or wire inside (1mm not tubular)
• knot it
• thread it through beads
• bake polymer clay on it
• knit, weave or sew with it and much more....
IMPORTANT: The wider you stretch it the shorter the length so allow extra - generally 1/2 to 1 times the final length.
Common sense and experimentation are the key to discovering your own personal design style with this unique material.
Nickel free, Waterproof (great for fiber crafts, jewellery and sewing where items may get wet or need to be gently hand washed) and Heat Resistant (great embellishment for use in low heat projects - under 275 degrees, bakes directly into polymer clay).
Note: Certain colours (primary copper) can change slightly when heated so advance testing is always recommended.
