Wire from the Ring Lord
by: Christine

A quick note about ordering wire from the Ring Lord

I've ordered from them many times and they are a great supplier. Great service and great prices. (And Canadian too! Just like me :)

Be aware though that they are primarily selling wire to make into jump rings for chain maille weaving.

Why does this matter?

This matters because the wire is generally at least half-hard, meaning you won't want to use it for most wire wrapping applications without annealing it first.

Annealing is a torch heating method to make the wire more malleable.

If you are looking for wire for wire wrapping and aren't familiar with using a torch, you might want to look for "dead soft" (a term describing the softest temper) wire.

You can get almost any kind of wire that you can possibly imagine at really good prices:


Good luck. ;o)

Rolled Square Wire
by: Szarka

I am thinking you are looking for the twisted look? If you use dead soft square and then roll (twist) it with a pin vise you may get the effect you are looking for.

Does this help?

Hi, James,

Our company has items that are probably close, but no banana.

Here's what I'm thinking of -- gold-plated bullion (French wire).

It's kinda ropy, though you'd want to run a stronger wire *through* it.

To judge for yourself, you can have a look at French Bullion

Good luck!
