My package doesn't have the mm on it anymore sorry >.< and conveniently (NOT) I can't find my other spool of coated wire to tell you what I have been using..yay for moving
I usually get mine from Joann's , Micheals, Walmart. Any place really that carries beading supplies. I think the one I am using that isn't marked came from a bead store in Ohio so that won't really be of much help...somewhere along the way the stickers came off or something sigh.
When getting crimps I think there are different mm sizes too. You want to get something bigger so the wire will actually fit. I get mine alot bigger because I do multiple strands of beads sometimes into one crimp. You can get the crimps same places you should be able tofind the wire!
I've been wanting to order from Shipwreck for a while now, probably going to do it soon because I am out of my decorative bead caps..not that I need anymore beads lol.... I used to just shop at Byzantium, this awesome bead store in Ohio but I moved so no more of that and I haven't found anything like it here...so Shipwreck I think is going to be my new friend
That and Craft stores when jewelry making supplies are on sale haha...
