Wire - Sterling Silver - Dead Soft


 

.925 Sterling Silver

Sterling silver is 925 parts fine silver and 75 parts copper. This makes a strong wire that is durable for jewelry findings, earwires and other components. Sterling silver can be co-fired in silver clay by first depletion gilding the metal using Silver Prep. Sterling silver wire can be work hardened by stretching, twisting, rolling, hammering, tumbling, etc. It can also be heat hardened.
Heat Hardening Sterling Silver: Place items in kiln to be hardened. Fast ramp to 750F and hold for 30 minutes. Remove and quench if possible. Quenching quickly realigns the crystal structure to result in additional hardness.

If you are ordering more than 1 foot and would like a continuous length, please call customer service or simply specify any requirements in the order notes.


Please note: Sterling Silver wire is custom cut and is not returnable.
