Managers Special

WireLace® is a ribbon woven with very fine wires of brass and copper or aluminum and bonded with an enamel coating to create a variety of stunning colors.

It is:

  • NICKEL-FREE: an ideal choice for persons with nickel-allergies or for creating jewelry for countries with a ban on certain products containing nickel.
  • WATER PROOF: great for fiber crafts, jewelry and sewing where items may get wet or need to be gently hand washed.
  • HEAT RESISTANT: a great embellishment for use in low heat projects (under 275 degrees): bake directly into polymer clay; adorn lamp shades, hot-glue into scrapbooks. Note: certain colors (primarily copper) can change slightly when heated so advance testing is always recommended.

What Can You Do with it?

  • expand it to create lacy waves about 3 times its width (but not the 1 mm width. Try braiding or crocheting with that instead! We really like this project for the 1 mm. )
  • use it like ribbon
  • insert beads, string or wire inside (but again, not the 1 mm)
  • knot it
  • thread it through beads
  • bake polymer clay on it
  • knit, weave or sew with it

Tips!

  • The wider you stretch it the shorter it gets - so allow extra length - approximately .5 – 1 x the final length.
  • To string it, twist the end and add a dab of glue, like hypo tube cement. Let it dry, and trim at an angle.
  • Hold beads/crystals in place with a dab of hypotube cement.
  • Insert wire/bead cable inside so that it doesn't stretch out your waves using a blunt, large needle, i.e. yarn needle or bent wire.
  • Don't let it get stuck to the hook portion of Velcro™ fasteners. Bad thing. On the upside, it sticks to it really well, on the down side, it won't look nice when it comes off.

Have fun with it!
