Sterling Gallery Wire
This intricate sterling silver wire features an open, filigree look and is ideal for adding beauty and interest to custom bezels in wide variety of jewelry designs.
The wire features a hard (as rolled) temper and is delicate and should be handled with care. Hard wire is significantly work-hardened and, though it does not bend readily, it stubbornly holds its shape after forming. Keep in mind that hardness is changeable (by annealing or heat-hardening) and is relative among metal types (each temper will feel and handle differently from one metal to another). When finishing your pieces, also keep in mind that the harder the metal is, the brighter a finish it will take.
