I get it in the mail and they are only 3 yards each. Now this isn't a huge problem, but I think the picture of the product being sold should be correct. Because I'm now missing 24 yards of wire, I could have done a lot more if I had the amount labeled.
Also, A lot of the various colors are pretty similar in color. The red's look very very similar when next to each other. And two spools of the same green. The blue is a lot darker than in the picture. I realize they could just be randomly assorted, but I was looking for variety of colors and I feel like I only got 8 different colors compared to the 12.
Also "permanently colored copper wire", is that why it was chipping off when I was unwrapping it from the spool? :/ Not cool. Chipped off a lot more when using my pliers.
So I'm not exactly happy with this purchase.
This is coated so you may have trouble with the color flaking off. I have mostly been using it with a coiling gizmo and a bracelet jig, so I haven't had this issue yet since the work I have done is primarily by hand. If you are going to be using pliers a lot, I'd recommend ones with nylon jaws or a nylon coating as this should be gentler on the wire (you can buy lots of such pliers on Amazon).
I got twelve different colors; some are similar but, to my eye, they are not exactly the same. I bought these same packages in other gauges to use with other wire working tools and the colors match across "buy-the-dozen" sets so if you want to use multiple gauges of wire in coordinating colors, that would be possible. I do feel the gauge (20) listed on the package is accurate, and this is easy to cut with my flush cutters or a regular wire cutter. Please note there are only 3 yards on each of these spools.
Overall, this is a nice, inexpensive set to practice with. If you make jewelry with it, do try to avoid getting it wet or sweaty, as that should help preserve the finish for longer. Also avoid harsh abrasives during cleaning. (I would have higher standards for something pricier, but at around ten bucks, I am just fine with the quality.)
