Wire Guardians

Protect stringing materials from undue wear. Use Sterling Silver Wire Guardian findings to reduce abrasion from clasps and other sharp-edged components. Use Wire Guardian Findings in the same way you use French wire; the only difference is Wire Guardian findings are rigid. Gold Filled Sterling Silver Wire Guardian Findings offer 1/20 14k Gold for high end designs. For wire diameters up to 0.53mm (.021”).

  1. I am wondering if you sell and even install ear wires for earrings (ie., no lead, nickel, etc). I bought some inexpensive earrings I really like, but think they may be unsafe to wear!

    Thank you for your help,

    1. Jerri,
      I am so sorry that I missed this message on our website. Please forgive me for my late response. Yes we have a variety of save ear wires including no lead, niobium and stainless steel. We could probably change them out for you quickly here at the shop. If you have any questions, just give us a call at the shop (360) 393-4605. Thanks
