Copper can be alloyed with many different metals. Brass is copper and zinc alloy, bronze is copper and tin alloy and nickel silver is actually a copper, nickel and zinc alloy.

Wrapit® bright copper wire is true-color, copper wire (99.8% copper without a trace of nickel). This wire is soft and easy to shape making it ideal for use in wire-wrapping and other styles of jewelry design. Wrapit wire is exclusively offered at Fire Mountain Gems and Beads.
