Loving simple jewelry, I'm planning to make these earrings mentioned in the subject. My problem is, that the project calls for 18 gauge fine silver wire...
18 gauge just isn't comfortable for my ears, it's too thick. I can only wear up to 20 gauge.Now there is the next problem: I'm not able to get 20 gauge fine silver wire here in Europe (I've stopped ordering from overseas, always a struggle with customs).What I can get is either 20 gauge argentium wire or 21 gauge fine silver.
Never mind.... After 3 more hours of googling I found a very small european supplier that carries 20 gauge fine silver.A tip for all others who are having trouble getting fine silver: look for metal clay suppliers! They offer more of this stuff than 'standard' jewelry making suppliers
