I am a jewelry artist who knits hand knitted wire jewelry. I have been knitting with Artistic Wire for 10 years and selling my jewelry at art shows throughout Michigan and into the Chicago area. I choose 24 gauge non-tarnish silver wire to knit bracelets because it gives the bracelet a sturdy feel. I prefer, as do my customers, non-tarnish silver rather than sterling silver because the sterling silver tends to tarnish. I have never had a problem with the non-tarnish silver wire tarnishing in all of the years I have been making jewelry. I order my wire from ArtBeads.com because they have good prices and quick service. I also purchase my findings from Art Beads because I feel they have a good selection of choices.
Perfect for Wire Wrapping
This wire is so easy to work with for wire wrapping! I was using it for practice instead of sterling silver, and the finished product is just as beautiful. The finish stays bright and shiny without tarnishing. Just be sure to use nylon pliers to avoid any cuts to the wire--the copper will show through if it's damaged.
I use this wire all the time, and I am very happy with it.
24 Gauge Silver Non-Tarnish Artistic Wire, 10 Yard
I love to use the 24 Gauge Silver Artistic Wire to wire wrap my crystals. It is one of the supplies that I used the most in my jewelries.
