Description

This dead-soft, heavy-gauge sterling silver square wire features four flat sides; give it a twist to create attractive twist wire designs. Simple hoops, bangles and other components take on a fresh, dynamic look when made using square wire. 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.

0-gauge wire is useful for substantial or heavy jewelry designs, accessories and hollowware or for any designs that demand high durability; the heaviest gauges (4–0 ga.) are suitable for forging and heavy manipulation. 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 heavy sterling silver wire is packaged in 3-ft. lengths that can be cut to any length, 1" and up. Quantities greater than three feet will be filled by a number of 3-ft. pieces plus whatever cut length is needed to meet the quantity ordered. Due to the cutting capabilities of the shear, minimum purchase is 1".

Please Note: • 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.
IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling silver by keeping it in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store metals in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
• A 15% restocking fee applies to returns of custom cut-to-order metals.
