Made with durable #304 stainless steel, this dead-soft round wire offers the color of white metal and the advantage of being nickel-free. The wire is ideal for wire-wrapping and base metal designs. Because it is non-contaminating, stainless steel wire is also useful as a binding wire for soldering operations. Round wire is ideal for creating bangles, rings, cuff bracelets, and a myriad of components that embellish other findings; the wire is soft. It is the bread-&-butter of jewelry making and is useful 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.
This wire is packaged on 1-lb. spools.
