Intended for decorative frames and accent work, this nickel alloy soft wire offers an attractive beaded appearance with a flat back. Due to the slender thickness of the metal between beads, this wire is suitable only for applications that do not subject it to ongoing stress.
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.
This nickel alloy wire is pre-packaged in 5-foot coils; minimum order is one coil.
