Wire Guardian – Silver Plated – Nickel & Lead Free
Use wire guardians at the end of your tigertail. They form a loop and prevent the tigertail from being damaged or cut by findings. All good jewellery made for sale should include Guardians as it will prolong the life of the jewellery.
See the small photo above for an example of Guardians in use.
Wire guardians are small findings used in jewellery-making to protect beading wire from abrasion and wear. They are made of metal and have a tube-like shape with loops at each end. Wire guardians act as a buffer between the beading wire and the clasp or other components, preventing the wire from fraying or breaking due to repeated movement or tension, thus ensuring the longevity of the jewellery piece.
