Sterling Silver 2.3mm Full-Bead Wire | Dead Soft | Sold by cm | 101521



Intended for decorative frames and accent work, this dead-soft, sterling silver full-bead wire offers an attractive, smooth beaded appearance with small sections of wire connecting the beads. The slenderness of the wire between beads makes this wire suitable only for applications that do not subject the wire to ongoing stress; we suggest annealing this bead wire frequently. 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.

• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling silver by keeping it in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store metals in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
