Professional-quality sterling silver-filled wire has a high-perceived value at a fraction of the cost of sterling silver. Sterling silver-filled wire is made of a durable outer layer of sterling silver surrounding a copper-alloy core and is finished with an anti-tarnish coating to preserve the beauty. Half-hard wire is malleable; however, it will maintain an intricate shape under stress.
For optimal results, use nylon jaw pliers or pliers dipped in Tool Magic® heavy-duty rubber coating when working with sterling silver-filled wire to prevent scratching or marring. Contains 10% silver, 1/10 silver filled.
