Great For Costume Making! Used in the making of TV’s “Game of Thrones” costumes and by Cosplay cosplayers everywhere. Wire Mesh Ribbon is very popular with jewelry designers, crafters and costume designers throughout the world and has become a must for creative-minded people everywhere.
Our Italian-made 1 millimeter width, 6mm (1/4 inch) width and 20mm (3/4 inch) width Wire Mesh Ribbons are woven from brass, copper and/or aluminum and are coated in enamel and lacquered to prevent color change. Wire Mesh Ribbon is water proof, heat resistant and nickel free. It has a light, fabric-like texture and is comfortable to wear against one’s neck. Unlike heavier textured products made elsewhere, the Italian wire mesh ribbon that we carry does not feel scratchy against the skin. It can be used as a ribbon to support a pendant, as a tube with beads or other cords carefully inserted inside it or it can be fluffed out to nearly 3 times its original size, creating beautiful ruffles, swirls and waves which are especially useful in costume design.
This amazingly versatile product can be twisted, knotted and pulled into just about any shape. Weave wire into it, attach crystals, sew beads onto it… you can even needle-felt it with yarn! Think of the possibilities for scrap booking, card making, Cosplay costumes, polymer clay projects (bake it right in!)… The possibilities are truly endless!
Remember that we sell our Wire Mesh Ribbon By The Meter, which is 3.28 feet. Don’t be fooled by companies claiming lower prices! When doing your price comparisons be certain to compare the same length, width and color. Enjoy!!
