Freshwater Pearls

Unlike other gems, the pearl is born of water and living creatures. Pearls begin as a foreign body embedded within a mollusk's shell. The animal's defense against the foreign body is to form a protective layer of nacre around the intruder. The culturing process simply entails planting a "seed" within the mollusk, normally either a plastic bead or a small piece of shell, nature takes its course and another pearl is born. Our cultured freshwater pearls come in an ever growing variety of shapes, sizes and colors, so whatever your fashion preference you are sure to find the pearl to suit your needs. Ancient beliefs about the origin of the pearl include: moonlight filled dewdrops and Aphrodite's tears of joy. Although not technically a stone, pearl is one of June's birthstones. Currently, the International Commission of Colored Gemstones (CIBJO) recognizes only five organic (once living material) gemstones: Ammolite, amber, pearl, jet, and coral. Also be sure to check out our freshwater pearl mixtures and our flawlessly crafted glass pearls by Jablonex and crystal pearls by Swarovski.

Description: Artistic Wire® is the most extensive line of permanently colored copper wire for jewelry and crafts. Artistic Wire has an exclusive enamel coating that is available in a high-shine metallic finish, or in a matte finish. The coating is engineered to resist tarnishing, chipping, and peeling and to stand up to coiling, spiral making, twisting, wrapping, and other wire working techniques. You can easily form Artistic Wire into jewelry components such as chain maille, beaded chain, jump rings, earwires, wire wrapped pendants, gemstone settings, and more!
Wire is measured in gauges, the smaller the gauge the thicker the wire. One might use a thicker gauged wire for support and strength, such as a stem of a beaded flower, and a thinner gauged wire for delicate or intricate crocheted wire projects. Use a middle gauged wire for basic wire wrapping and jig projects. 26 Gauge wire is approximately 0.0159 inches or 0.404 millimeters in diameter. Be sure to check out our great selection of wire working tools and wire working books.
