Happy new year all!
I have a client who asked me to remake a necklace I fabricate in
Gold instead of silver. The gold is way too expensive and I am open
to using gold filled wire but it doesn’t come in the shape I need
(flattened round 12 gauge .045inch x .105inches). I am open to using
a rolling mill to flatten the wire but I’m not sure the gold layer
would surivive the rolling process. I have made this wire in silver
with a mill and I had to anneal 2 to 3 times. If Anyone has any ideas
on where to purchase wire like this (rectangle would be fine also) I
would really appreciate it. I would also appreciate any thought as to
whether the gold layer would survive the rolling process.
Thanks so much
