Frequently Asked Questions


What are Miyuki beads?


Miyuki is a Japanese bead manufacturer. The variant we most use is called Miyuki "Delica" beads which are one of the world's most famous beads. They are tiny and of very high quality, there are tons of colors to choose from, and they are uniform in size, making them very attractive and interesting to work in a pattern and giving a neat and beautiful finish.

What is the difference between artistic wire 18 gauge and 20 gauge, Brass and 14K gold filled?

Artistic wire is basically colored copper wire used for jewelry and crafts. Artistic Wire uses an exclusive enamel coating that resists tarnishing, chipping, and peeling. It comes in several gauges and colors. The gauge is based on the thickness of the wire. The more gauges the less thickness. I use 20,22 and 24-gauge wire to wrap crystals and beads.

Brass is a yellow alloy of copper and zinc.
It resembles gold in color.
and it is nickel-free


Types of gold we use in our pieces: 

14K Gold Filled :

14k gold filled is a solid layer of 14kt gold pressure bonded to a brass base metal. Gold-filled jewelry is durable and tarnish-resistant, hypoallergenic, and the perfect alternative to solid gold. I use 14k gold-filled ear wire for my earrings.

18K gold plated

Gold plating is the process of applying a thin layer of gold onto the surface of another metal which is often silver copper or brass. This process is done through a chemical treatment and several different gold plating types are used in various industries depending on the use of the product being manufactured or produced. In jewelry, most pieces are silver or brass metal covered with a layer of Gold plating.
