Product Description

Artistic Wire is the most extensive line of permanently colored copper wire for jewelry and crafts. Exclusive Silver Plated colors that offer striking beauty and shine. These wires are made by first plating the copper wire with a precision layer of pure silver. Then we carefully apply our unique enamel color and non-tarnish coating on top of this silver plating. The silver plating beneath the color adds an incredible high-shine and brilliance to the wire. Great for making jewelry components such as chain maille, beaded chain, jump rings, earwires, and wire wrapped pendants.

Customer Reviews

This wire is very nice and sturdy, but easy to work with and still pliable.
Jess
The wire wraps smoothly, bends without breaking and stays where I put it– works for me.

This is my all time favorite wire for just about every jewelry project! I've been designing jewelry for about 3 years now, and was absolutely thrilled to discover a bright, silver-colored wire that does NOT tarnish. The thinner gauges of silver colored wire (24 and up) are slightly brighter in color, but all gauges keep a lovely white sheen indefinitely.

In thinner gauges (22, 24) the wire is somewhat soft, making it very easy to do wire wrapping. I've also found that the 20 gauge is just hard enough for making smaller jump rings (4,6, maybe 8 mm diameter) for chainmaille designs etc. The 18 gauge is a good stiffness for making larger jump rings. I'm not sure why one review mentioned it being too stiff, as I find it is quite a pleasure to work with. It's true that the 18 gauge is harder to bend than the 20 gauge, but I just attributed that to the difference in thicknesses.

As with all wires, you do have to be careful with the pliers to avoid nicks and scratches. In addition, the coating of this wire that makes it non-tarnish can start to shred off if scraped or otherwise abused multiple times. This only seems to be a problem with the heavier gauges (I noticed it with this 18 gauge silver colored wire).

Finally, the packaging is very handy, as you can just wind the desired amount of wire off the spool. No mess or frustration!

Overall a very versatile wire. I couldn't be happier with the product and just pray that it continues to be available as I rely on this for all my jewelry now!

Update: I've recently started making earring hooks out of this wire (20 gauge, actually) and the coating of the wire seems to make it hypoallergenic! I usually have sensitive ears, but this hasn't bothered me yet.

Arrived in a well packaged and timely manner. Exactly as stated in description. Great for heavier jewelry. I love it. I would definitely recommend this gauge if you are looking for a more durable, heavier weight, larger size wire. Tip: the lower the gauge number the heavier the wire. So 22 or 20 gauge is thinner than 18 gauge. I hope that helps someone.

Wonderful non tarnish wire - I buy it all the time but this was a GREAT price on 4 yards. And the nontarnish is just that - it doesn't tarnish!

I've used this product in wire wrapping pendants for years and it's GREAT to work with. I HIGHLY Recommend this product!
