On all of the 26G wire, I am happy. I will see how long 15 yd. lasts for me.
I purchased this wire to practice my wavy bracelets with, and since the silver wire I will be using is going to be a 26 gauge as well, I was pleased with my purchase. Both gauges are similar in size so I was able to get a lot of practice, enabling me to really get the process down pat and sell a lot of bracelets! The color also helped in enabling me to see exactly where I was as well. So, the 26 gauge in this wire is very similar to the 26 gauge in sterling wire, with the exception that the 26 gauge sterling silver wire is just a tad bit more fine, and holds its shape just a bit better.
good purchase for what I wanted to use it for
It's a versatile wire with a dramatic black color, but the color does peel easily. Even a pair of nylon pliers peels the black, revealing the copper. If you can manage to be very gentle, it does look nice in a finished piece
