Daily Wire Tip June 8: What is F-Length Wire?
Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip
June 8, 2010
What is F-length wire? I have found it in patterns in Dale’s Wirework book, but don’t know what it is. Thanks.
Whenever I present a pattern in any arena, “F length” refers to the length of wire in the “F“ormula, which accompanies that specific pattern. Often these patterns are bracelets or ring designs that take different project sizes into account. For example, if making bracelets, the “F length” wire for an 8-inch bracelet will be longer than for a 6-inch bracelet. To learn more, read the beginning of each pattern, where the “F“ormula is specified.
