Is nickel used in the making of copper wire for jewelry?
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.
