A while back, someone mentioned using 26 gauge gold filled wire, I
think for crochet. I have been searching for this and all I can find
is “hard.” For what I do, even dead soft g-f is difficult to use. Of
my other options, karat gold is too expensive (still, unfortunately)
and non-tarnish brass reduces the “perceived value” of my
work–although it actually looks beautiful.
So I’m wondering if anyone knows of a supplier for smallish
quantities of dead soft. If you have ideas for options I’ve missed,
I’d be glad to hear about those too.
