You can’t get more “old school” than this miniature coil that is used to protect your thread or stringing wire where the clasp meets the beads. You only need a small amount (about ⅜”per side) to make the U-turn at the clasp. Very similar to a slinky, this finely-coiled gold tube is used to cover your thread and keep it out of harm’s way where it gets the most wear and tear: at the clasp. Since bullion is so fragile, use sharp cutters to make clean cuts. If you’re stringing using Griffin silk, the needle is already attached, this size bullion will fit comfortably up to Griffin’s size #4. If you are using regular thread, collapse the eye of a flexible eye needle before stringing the needle and thread through the bullion. Micro C-Lon will fit through doubled. Made in Pakistan. Nickel Free and EU compliant.
Sold in package of 16 inches of bullion; not always in one piece*.
Please Note: Gold plating may vary from a soft yellow to almost a coppery orange.
*Unfortunately, bullion is fragile and sometimes it is damaged during the manufacturing process. We have no control over this. In general, you will receive approximately 14 inches of useable bullion.
