Mandala Crafts Thin Copper Wire for Jewelry Making, Sculpting, Weaving, Hobby, Gem Metal Wrap; Soft and Bendable; 1 Spool (26 Gauge 50M, Bare Copper)
This spool of copper wire has a beautiful shiny sheen. The glossy metallic finish on the surface resists tarnishing, peeling, or chipping during coiling, twisting, or spiral making. It is extremely easy to work with by hand or with tools such as straightening pliers and very easy to cut with pliers, scissors, or flush cutters.
The copper color wire is bare copper and patinas nicely. It can even be used for physics demos or electronic projects. The colored wires are tarnish free, even when heated. The bright and vibrant color will not blemish or discolor.
As a general purpose or hobby wire for artistic projects, this wire is useful for a multitude of DIY projects. For jewelers, this wire is great for beading or making jewelry and components such as jump rings, ear wires, ear cuffs, twisted pendants, eye clasps, bails, French earring hooks and hoops, bracelets, and link-chains. For stone, crystal, or gemstone wrapping, this might be the best wire to get a detailed look and pattern. It is also a good alternative metal to real silver, for beginners to tackle.
For crafters, this durable and lightweight wire can be easily hammered, bent, or wrapped, while keeping its luster and form. The moldable wire is easy to manipulate but stiff enough to hold its shape. It can be used to make or decorate wreaths, hangers, picture frames, 3D sculptures, napkin rings, letters, mesh, ornaments, and stained glass.
