This dead-soft, sterling silver pattern wire features a smooth center and textured edges; add more detail and customization by stamping or engraving the smooth section of the wire. Pattern wire helps take at least one step out of your fabrication process with its decorative pattern already created on the wire surface; shown oxidized to highlight the details. This wire is ideal for creating rings, bracelets, dangles, barrettes and more. 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.
The wire is packaged in coils and 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.
