Beadsmith craft wires is great for projects, designs, household decorations and as a practice wire either for trying
out new techniques or when planning an intricate design. Tarnish resistant craft wire will age over time and may
need a slight wipe over when exposed areas are unraveled from the spool. It is very affordable though and is of a
higher standard than that of the cheaper Taiwan made wires.
It is also excellent for making jewelry or wire wrapping.
Fine silver, pure silver or 999 silver wire bends easily, is soft and malleable and does not become
work hardened. Pure silver does not tarnish making it ideal for intricate wire work such as wire crochet
Metal clays, PMC and ACS, are fine silver, so fine silver wire works well when embedded in the clay for
loops and bails. Fine silver can be used with glass in lampworking (bead making) to add interest to the bead
by making interesting chemical reations with the glass. Use fine silver for metal fusing, as it has a lower
melting point, and does not firescale.
German Style Plated Wire is excellent quality shaping wire. This copper and brass wire has an anti-tarnish coating and has the perfect temper and finish for most jewelry wire wrapping uses.
Nickel silver sheet, also know as German silver is an alloy of nickel, copper and zinc but is more durable
than silver. Nickel silver works well and polishes to a bright silver like finish. Use nickel silver in jewelry
making or to practice jewelry projects. Nickel silver contains no silver.
Sterling silver wire and sterling silver sheet for jewelry making and wire wrapping. Many gauges of silver
wire or sheet for your hand crafted designs. Use our silver twisted wire for accents or twist sterling silver
square wire to make your own design.
