Copper wire


1.5mm bare copper wire, sold by the metre.

This can be cut up to use or wound round beads; the copper will turn bright red after the kiln.

Excellent for adding as decoration. It is better to encase the mesh rather than leave it on the surface as it doesn’t adhere to glass easily. Keep out of the flame as much as possible as it will discolour and spark in the flame.

The bead is for illustrative purposes only.
