Hi,  I may have asked this before, but I didn't see myself when I searched this topic.  Have you used aluminum wire?  I saw some at a bead show and have made a few bracelets/earrings.  Do you have any ideas?  I've used 6 g wire, so it's really big, but light and fairly easy to use.  thanks. catdaddytn

Main problem with aluminium is that if it's not anodized or clear coated it tends to leave a black residue on most people's skins.

I've made more pieces with aluminum:  bracelets, earrings, pendants.   Maybe one day I will learn how to post photos.  My daughter went to college before we got to the photo project.
