- Shiela, OR
Square wire has four distinct sides whereas the round wire is cylindrical with no distinguishable sides. Square wire is often used for wire wrapping when working with a piece that has flat surfaces. Round wire works well for wire wrapping pieces with more rounded surfaces. Both can be used for jewelry designs including necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rosaries.
