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.
