We are still shipping orders. Delivery delays will happen as Australia Post is experiencing service interruptions in many locations. Please check your email with your tracking link and keep an eye on where your parcel is. We are fortunate that our parcels are making it to Brisbane Airport for distribution.
There is significant flooding, road closures, depots flooded and limited access to many areas. Here is a link to Australia Posts’ site for the current status of this event.
On a personal note, we received almost 1,000 mls of rain between Wednesday and Sunday last week. Fortunately we have had no damage, just access to roads was very limited due to extreme flash flooding which has now cleared.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Dead Soft Vs Half Hard Wire
Sometimes you have the option of choosing “dead soft” wire or “half hard” wire. As the names suggest, dead soft wire is extremely easy to bend, even with your hands. Half hard wire offers some resistance when you try to bend it. The advantage of dead soft wire is that it’s easy to shape. The advantage of half hard wire is that once you’ve shaped it, it retains its shape better.The more you work with a piece of wire, the more it will naturally harden. This is called work hardening the wire. When you’ve achieved the shape you want, you may be able to hammer the wire to harden it. Using a ball-peen hammer will give the wire a dappled texture, using a chasing hammer can nicely flatten it, and carefully using a nylon or rawhide hammer can harden it without altering the shape. Whether to buy half hard or dead soft is often a matter of personal preference. Nevertheless, here are a few general guidelines to help you get started:
- Dead soft works well to make flowing curves and spirals.
- Half hard creates good sharp angles.
- Dead soft is typically used for wire weaving and wire wrapping, including wrapped cabochons and “sculpted” wire jewelry.
- Half hard is good for making components that need to hold their shape .
- Gold-fill and silver-fill wire are generally harder than dead soft sterling silver or fine silver wire, and are often closer to half hard.

Scale Of Hardness For Beadalon Brand Wire
When in doubt, choose dead soft wire. Wire becomes more stiff and brittle the more you work with it. This is called work hardening. If you accidentally buy wire that is too malleable for your intended purpose, you can work harden it yourself with a nylon-head hammer, a Wire Whacker, a draw plate, or a tumbler. To re-soften wire that’s too stiff for your intended purpose, you need to anneal it – a more complicated process.
