Topics: Glass, Dichroic

Q.
I am firing Dichro glass. I would like to put some silver wire loops in between the glass to hang the pieces with--what kind of silver flat and round wire can I use that can be fired in a kiln?

A.
Fine silver wire or findings would be ideal for the project you describe. Fine silver can handle the higher heat needed for firing glass and marries well with glass. Sterling silver should not be fired above 1200 degrees Fahrenheit.
