This dead soft, 24-gauge fine silver round wire is the bread-&-butter of jewelry making; it is ideal for creating components and for a wide variety of techniques. Dead soft fine silver wire is easy to bend, shape and hammer; it is an ideal starting point for forming, shaping and wire-wrapping. Keep in mind that hardness is changeable (by annealing or heat-hardening) and is relative among metal types (each temper will feel and handle differently from one metal to another). When finishing your pieces, also keep in mind that the harder the metal is, the brighter a finish it will take.
24-gauge wire is ideal for stringing pearls and small-hole beads. As you know, jewelry wire has as many uses as there are jewelers and designers who use it to achieve their vision; these suggested uses simply represent some of the more common applications of this metal weight.
This fine silver wire is packaged on spools only. It can be cut to any length that satisfies the system minimum. Orders must weigh at least 0.01 ozt.; if you click 'Add to Cart' for a quantity less than this, the cart will offer a prompt to let you know what the minimum for this item is.
Fine silver, .999% pure, offers a bright white color and is best suited for jewelry pieces not exposed to daily wear and tear.
• IMPORTANT: As a supplier to the jewelry trade, Rio Grande strongly discourages any medical use of our fabrication metals. Your safety is important to us; therefore, we do not accept orders of fine silver for any purpose that includes ingesting, injecting, implanting or applying it topically. Do not use Rio Grande fine silver for colloidal purposes.
• Be aware that fine-gauge wire that is normally spooled may simply be wrapped and bagged, at our discretion, when ordered in lengths less than 5 ft.
• We strive to measure quantities ordered as closely as possible; however, due to manufacturing tolerances at the mill, please allow for a ±10% variance when ordering.
