Wire guardians are highly useful little contraptions as the name suggests they are designed to protect or defend your chosen stringing material be it nylon coated wire, silk, nylon or even cotton from the inevitable everyday ware and tear. As well as providing a shelter for your stringing material in the little groove at the top of the horse shoe shape they also offer a much more professional and altogether finished look, which is extremely important if you are looking to sell the beautiful and unique jewellery you have lovingly crafted. Used as an alternative to French Wire or ‘gimp’ wire guardians are much less fiddly, but have the same stunning finish. We stock 4mm wire guardians in packets of 25 they are available in silver, gold, black and copper plate as well as [sterling silver]which is always perfect for those extra special pieces of jewellery.
