Questions & Answers
This gauge and others (18 and 16 gauge) have been hammered without allowing copper to seep through. As far as I am concerned, the effect of the pings is better than polishing.
While I know it has a copper plating, I am not aware of the technique used to prevent it from tarnish. An extremely thin layer of silver covers the surface.
Thanks, Rich. This does the trick much better than just bending the wire to include a full wrap rather than just bending it.
As far as communication with a complete shell and not just the bending of wires is concerned, it works very well.
Selected User Reviews For Artistic Wire 20-Gauge Tarnish Resistant Silver Coil Wire, 25-Feet
I wasn't aware of the problem until after wearing the wire for just three days, a customer complained that the coating on the wire began chipping off everywhere and turning her finger green. Unfortunately, because of the high price and ease of use, this wire is no longer available. There was no guarantee the wire would last forever, but I was hoping it would last longer than a few days. What an embarrassment.
We usually love this wire but quality has declined over the last couple of When the wire was wrapped around the spool, it was horribly bent. It does not have an even coat of silver on the whole length of the jewelry box, and portions of the enamel are missing completely. A while back, this product was excellent. These days, not so much. It looks like I'll have to find another supplier.
I've used this product for many years in the past and had no hesitation ordering it online and having it delivered to my home. A silver colored wire in 20 g is what I use to make My finished projects look like dandruff after using the spool I received in September 2018. It has a plastic coating that flakes off like dandruff. In the past, I've tried removing the coating or dissolving it with lacquer thinner, but it didn't There's a lot of mess at the moment. There is no reason why the manufacturer messed up such a great product!.
Only a few weeks into the project, copper is revealing itself It seems like rust is building up on your jewelry. Having made 16 pendants with this wire only a few weeks ago, they are ALL showing some copper through in spots. There's nothing special about this truck, just cheap junk with rust. This is horrible. It's a waste of time and now I'm going to have to do all these things over again.
Wonderful wire and it is exactly as shown in the picture. "Artistic Wire" from Beadalon has become a crafting staple in my collection because of its ease of use and ability to be shaped easily into any design I desire. In my collection of wires, I have different tones and gauges in pretty much every tone. It is the perfect material for experimenting with new techniques and designs since it is so much cheaper than actual silver or gold wire. Even more beautiful are the metal patterns and colors, making them good to use on their own (instead of more precious metal goals). It's a great product and I'd purchase it For your information It always seems to me that there are a lot of complaints regarding the wire gauge. People complain that the wire is either thinner or wider than what they anticipated. In the event that you are not too familiar with wire and how guage affects their size, you should do yourself a favor and research On the internet, you can find a lot of "gauge to millimeter" conversion charts (they even give examples of actual size). Take the time to search for conversion charts before purchasing, so you won't be disappointed whenever you end up purchasing the wrong size. It'll also save you and the seller the hassle of having to return the goods - both of which are troublesome. A review of less than 5 * does not help either. The fact that a seller's rating is negatively affected simply because a buyer was too lazy to double check the product's actual size annoys me to no end.
One spool of wire was included with the initial order, and four are supposed to come with the second shipment. Only one was in the replacement order. As well, it definitely tarnishes, and it does so very quickly. In the past, I have used this for pendants, but this time I used it for rings, I tested a sample to ensure it wouldn't tarnish and my fingers wouldn't grow green. It only took 2 hours for a simple band to peel off its coating.
When I make jewelry, I wrap this wire around the pendant to create swirls, curls, and overall designs. You can see examples of my work by viewing the attached photos.
Upon receiving it, I found a supplier's label OVER the manufacturers label, which confirmed what I had It worked well for me for a short while, but my beads were slipping out. Consequently, I put up a thin wire that is also 20g that I got out of my stash. I decided to peal off the label that had been placed over the original label and am able to see that it is 18g instead of the 20g I am disappointed. It is obvious I can work on a number of different projects with the 18g. We can no longer return because it is too late. My next step is to order the correct gauge, which will cost me more money.
