Product Description

This bare copper wire is suitable for use in crafts or for electrical grounding wire use. This single-strand wire is annealed for improved ductility and meets QQ-W-343 standards for uninsulated copper wire. It also meets ASTM B3 standards for annealed copper wire and complies with Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) regulations. This copper wire is suitable for use in crafts such as jewelry and weaving or for uninsulated wiring applications.

Electrical wire carries an electric current or grounds an electrical device. The amount of current a wire can carry is proportional to its size (gauge), and the wire is generally sheathed with coatings and coverings to insulate and protect it from moisture, chemicals, heat, and abrasion. Copper is the primary material for electrical wire, but alloys are sometimes used to increase its strength or its resistance to chemicals and the environment. Wire can be composed of a single strand or of many smaller strands, depending on its use, and is typically annealed to improve its ductility. Electrical wire is commonly used in industrial, electronic, and automotive applications.

I love these large, economical spools of bare copper wire for making jewelry. It is a good quality wire, which takes a patina well. Best of all, it's a great value. You get a lot of wire for not a lot of money! I just bought this 16 gauge wire which would have cost a fortune somewhere else. I will come back for more gauges of this wire as long as they stay this affordable.

This was exactly what I was looking for. The wire is great for jewelry making and can patina nicely. I have never found any comparable wire for anywhere close to this cheap.

The wire received is the correct gauge, but tarnished.
I received the wire June 19, 2014.
It is July 1, 2014 (about 2 weeks later), I have not unwrapped the clear wrap from the spool yet, but the wire is tarnished.
I did not look at the wire when I received it. I just assumed (ugh) that it was ok. Today when I went to use it, I realized the problem.
A disappointment.

Copper wire . . . is copper wire! This 16 gauge spool is just what I needed at 125'. It's hard to find a single spool like this today: mostly only tiny spools hanging high out of reach in a blister pack. Price was right, too!

It is bare 16 gauge wire, it is copper, and it is a 125' roll. The wire delivers exactly what is promised. I recommend this product if you need 16 gauge bare wire. The order arrived quickly. Good deal!

I use this copper wire for jewlery making and wire art. The order before this one I ordered 3 16 gauge spools, two were 16 and the third was 14 gauge. Not a problem, I could use it. This last order again I ordered 3 16 gauge and received 3 14gauge. The wire is great and so is the price, just wish I could finish my 16 gauge project.
