WireLuxe ribbon is a knit wire designed with a striated open weave center and tight knit edge. This unique combination creates a soft, flexible, lightweight knit with a firm structure that can be manipulated into different shapes by simply pulling one or both edges. It is a perfect base to wear as-is or embellish with seed beads, Swarovski Crystal flat backs, silk ribbons, WireLace ribbon, wire, and more. You can finish the ends of the ribbon with ribbon ends and cord ends. WireLuxe ribbon can be cut with scissors, and its self-locking knit won't unravel. It is tarnish resistant, nickel-free, and can be wiped clean with a water-damp jewelers cloth or lint-free cloth.
