A soft half round silver plated wire that is very useful for wrapping and securing pieces of jewellery together. Good for tiaras, especially wrapping the band as the flat part of the wire sits very nicely against the band.
A copper core that is silver plated with a anti-tarnish coating, the overall appearance of the wire is slightly matte, giving it a subtle satin effect.
The coating on the wire which is chemically bonded to the surface and then is thermally cured makes the wire tarnish resistant. The result is a clear protective layer that prevents the wire tarnishing. When bending and manipulating the wires, you may notice the coating peel away in small spots – usually at the seams where hard angles are formed. If the peeling happens, it is recommended that you gently flake off the small pieces. The surface of the wire will retain a molecular layer of tarnish resistance, and the finished wire wrapped design should look flawless.
