  • Darker gold / antique gold wire that's not too yellow gold!!

    I'm trying to source gold wire that isn't your average yellow/orangey gold - I need some darker gold / antique gold wire to make a tiara as I have a bride with antique gold jewellery!! So I will also need the wire in a thicker guage of 1.2mm and 0.4mm to wire wrap.

    It's proving to be a nightmare trying to find anything suitable. I wonder if brass wire would be the way forward?? :S

    Really hope someone can help me (and I will try and give anyone some help/advice where I can).

    Thanks

    I think that brass wire would work well. Have a look at the stuff that is used for hanging pictures. Vintaj do brass wire too.

      Brass might well work for you - it is a nice gold colour so will probably match her jewellery quite well. We have brass wire in 0.4mm / 0.6mm / 0.8mm and 1mm (unfortunately not 1.2mm but perhaps the 1mm will still be suitable) Otherwise we do also have a gold plated wire...

      You can use liver of sulpher on silver or copper to achieve a darker patina (either dip your item in or you can paint it on) - which can be good for creating a vintage type look, although i am not sure if you can use it on brass... will try and find out... (We also have copper wire - but that probably won't be the right colour match for your clients other gold jewellery.)

      Good luck finding the right thing!
