Materials I use include Copper, Antique Brass, Brass, Sterling Silver wire. I make polymer clay beads, purchase lampwork, czech, glass, Swarovski Crystal, furnace glass & make stamped beads from metal sheets cut & stamped by me. I paint & seal some of my antique brass. I coil wire for most of my colored wire designs. I use 16 gauge wire to make my other wire designs & 21 gauge & 26 gauge wire for wire wrapping.
