This artistic wire is great to work with, especially beaded crocheting. The beautiful dead soft quality of this artistic wire makes it easy to work, and the clear coating makes it slide through the fingers smoothly. I would recommend that a beginner handle this wire with extra care as the coating can be scratched with pliers and other tools, but with care the surface remains unmarked and smooth.
Artistic Wire is the most extensive line of permanently colored copper wire for jewelry and crafts. Exclusive Silver Plated colors that offer striking beauty and shine. These wires are made by first plating the copper wire with a precision layer of pure silver. Then we carefully apply our unique enamel color and non-tarnish coating on top of this silver plating. The silver plating beneath the color adds an incredible high-shine and brilliance to the wire.
