I use the 20 gauge Artistic wire to make bangle bracelets. I've been using Artistic wire for a few years, and have never had a piece tarnish. I also use it to loop beads together for long necklaces. Great product, and I love Artbeads' sale prices!
Great option to have available
I like this craft wire for several reasons. I am still a beginner at jewelry making, so I'm glad to have less expensive options than higher priced precious metals to work with. This craft wire also maintains it color well (doesn't tarnish or discolor) so that I can enjoy wearing what I've made. By using craft wire I can also experiment with different wire diameters to see how they work with different beads and how they look in finished pieces.
This wire looks like gold. The non tarnish feature really works
This wire is very sturdy and holds it shape very well. The color is very nice, too...it doesn't look cheap as most gold-toned items tend to. Also, it's fairly soft to cut with flush cutters.
