18G AWG niobium in stock!

As you may or may not know, there are two different wire gauge systems.  Yeah, it can be very confusing, not to mention frustrating if you didn’t know that before you ordered wire/rings. Up until now just about any place you bought 18g niobium wire from, would be selling you 18g SWG wire.  This poses problems if you like to mix metals such as silver and niobium, especially on weaves that are very size specific.

Well, no longer do you have to worry about that.  We now carry both 18g AWG (.040″) and 18g SWG (.045″) niobium.  Over the course of the next week we will be working on matching sizes for the more popular weaves.  As we get the sizes figured out and cut, we will add them to the store.  If you have a particular size you need and just can’t wait, drop us a line and we would be happy to help you out.

Argentium jump rings added

We are happy to announce we now have argentium silver in stock.  We have added 2 sizes of  argentium silver jump rings to our site as well as our etsy store.  We will be adding a few more sizes over the next few days.

What is argentium silver you ask?

From wikipedia, Argentium Sterling Silver is a modern sterling silver alloy which modifies the traditional sterling silver alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) by replacing some of the copper with the metalloid germanium.  This makes it very resistant to both firescale and tarnishing.
