Item details

All Artistic Wire is Nickel And Lead Free . ****Currently 5 Yards in stock *****

This listing is for 18 Gauge Artistic Wire. This black wire makes a great craft wire and is perfect for jewelry making and wire wrapping. I have used it in many projects and the color possibilities are endless.

I order my Artistic Wire in one Pound spools and offer it at great prices.
Your order will be cut and packaged from my spools.

All my wire is priced at Sale prices as I am removing it from my inventory.
I have many other gauges and colors available.
If you would like more than 5 yards please message me.

From Artistic
All of our wire (except the Non-Tarnish Brass) is copper-based. In the case of the silver colors, the copper is first covered in silver then the polyurethane colored coating is applied over the silver. It is the silver coat that makes the colors so brilliant. In the case of the Non-Tarnish Silver, we put clear polyurethane over the silver-covered copper. The polyurethane protects the silver from oxygen and makes it non-tarnishing. Also, it is because of the silver and the process of plating the copper is the reason why it is more expensive. This actually doubles the cost of the wire.
