Usually available by the foot, this sterling silver wire is available by weight for easier price comparison and increased control over the amount of stock needed for a variety of projects. Continuous length wire on each spool means no splices to interrupt a project! Thin gauges have low tensile strength, ideal for forming intricate shapes and weaving around findings and components, as well as stringing lightweight beads. Malleable half-hard wire is easy to manipulate and will maintain shape even under stress. Wire gauge size refers to the diameter of the wire; the larger the gauge number, the smaller the diameter size. For example, 24-gauge wire is smaller in diameter than 18-gauge wire.
For optimal results, use nylon jaw pliers or pliers dipped in Tool Magic® heavy-duty rubber coating when working with sterling silver wire to prevent scratching or marring.
