Dear Andy, Thanks so much for taking the time to reply to my inquiry!
Yes, I know that your karats are different as you can have 9K there
and we cannot go below 10K.
Rolled gold is exactly the same thing as goldfill and is made by
actually laminating gold to a base metal thru heat and pressure as
opposed to (gasp!) plating.
One of most famous wirewrappers in this century was an English
gentleman named Oxley. He had many wireworkers trained under him
when WWII broke out and he worked with a skeleton crew until the war
was over. He died in the fifties I believe, but his family has found
photos of many of his works and given them to “The Wire Artist
Jeweler” magazine out of Ontario, Canada and they have published a
few. He certainly was a master craftsman. His advertisement says he
worked in “rolled gold”. Here in the States, we have renamed it
Thanks again so much for your help and if you have a source for the
rolled gold, please let me know! Suzanne
