Fallen Angel Wire, lovingly hand antiqued by Karen in this shop, not only compliments the look of our brass, but also meets our strict safety standards. Fallen Angel Wire is produced under safe, fairly paid working conditions and contains no nickel or lead.

Hand antiqued Fallen Angel Wire works for everything from wrapping briolette gemstones to coiling, spirals and bezel-making. Surround your larger pendant stones with more elaborate wrapping or use our wire to make your own custom findings. This wire is pure copper based to better compliment the look of our warm black brass. Brass wire has a golden hue, while copper has the reddish warm undertones that work well with the Fallen Angel Brass patina.

Fallen Angel Wire is not enameled or shiny like most factory colored wire and has a patina, or soft powdery coating. Since the patina coating is delicate and meant to appear old, some of it will rub off on your fingers while working with the wire. This is natural and to be expected. You may choose to lightly buff the wire with a soft cloth before you begin your project. As you buff and work with the wire, some patina does come off, as it would were the wire weathered with age. The wire on your finished product will not leave a residue if you buff it lightly before you work with it.

JStein says:
"Love the patina on this wire."

North Shore Treasury says:
"Lovely, as always! This wire is so much fun to work with. It bends easily with a good amount of give, yet still holds its shape as you continue working it. The patina is fabulous- I love the dark color, which is lustrous but not shiny like enameled wires."

Where do you get your unique black findings?

Our items are not purchased from a wholesaler, but are created specifically for our shop in collaboration with American metal manufacturers and our New England master finisher. The small, family run businesses of this region take great pride in their craftsmanship and materials, under strict supervision of U.S. metal and labor regulations. No lead, cadmium or nickel is used and all labor is fairly paid and safely conducted in highly regulated working conditions. Your supplies from our shop are not "off the rack," but are exclusive and unique. We are proud to offer this product to the Etsy community.

Why does your finish have variations?

Our pewter and brass are finished by one very small New England family business, not a factory. Each piece of Fallen Angel Brass is hand rubbed twice and finished with a non toxic lacquer for durability. Variations in the dark finish are by design and part of the unique Fallen Angel Brass patina. We strive for uniformity and consistency, but also value the variation that comes from the one-man process that creates our finish. With wear, our finish will age, but in a pleasing antiqued way. Our brass is meant to be worn and aged further with use.
