.950 Platinum Round Wire, Dead-Soft

This gauge wire comes coiled



This dead-soft, .950 platinum round wire, the bread-&-butter of jewelry making, is useful for creating components and for a wide variety of techniques. Dead soft 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.

Composition is 95% platinum/5% ruthenium; stamp "PLAT". This wire 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.

Grayish-white platinum is a precious metal prized for its density and durability. Jewelry made from platinum is extremely strong, ideal for designs that need to stand up to daily wear, and is hypoallergenic, ideal for customers with metal sensitivities.
