Which gauge wire do I use for small decorative twists? Jan
Stacy's Answer:Hi Jan! I'm not certain what you mean by, "small decorative twists", but most gauges of wire can be twisted together to create a single piece of twisted wire. The smallest wire I personally use for this is 24ga which is slightly smaller than your 23ga. For the twisted jumprings I often use in my pieces, I use 16ga wire (1.3mm). 15ga wire is 1.45mm and 17ga wire is 1.15mm.
