Industrial Craft Wire
Craft wire doesn’t always have to apply to jewelry and other smaller projects. Industrial craft wire is available for projects requiring the utmost durability. For larger sculptures or framework for them, industrial wire is ideal for the strength required. Industrial wire is often flexible enough for jewelry and other items, and metals such as brass and copper add natural visual aesthetic to art projects.
Use Copper and Other Industrial Metals
Many jewelers utilize copper, brass, nickel and other industrial wire for crafts because of their combined coloration and strength. Nickel chromium (nichrome) wire has been used for applications such as ceramics as internal support during the heating process in a kiln. Copper is often used in jewelry like earrings and necklaces for its unique color, and aluminum wire – although typically used industrially for its electrical conductivity – is also useful as armature wire for sculptures.
Depending on the gauge of the metal, strength and flexibility are entirely modifiable for projects at an affordable price. Different alloys and tempers for each metal are also available to further meet project specifications. You can even choose unusual wire cuts such as hexagonal and square if necessary.
Buy in Bulk
If you need a large amount of industrial craft wire for a project, you can purchase different metals in bulk, at wholesale prices. When you buy in bulk, you save money while preventing the incompletion of projects, and you can secure enough supplies for future ones.
Industrial craft wire is oftentimes some of the most reliable, strengthening craft projects and providing high quality coloration and flexibility. At Arcor Electronics, you can find the right industrial wire for crafts that demand it, including unique specialty wire of your choice.
