Made from sterling silver and germanium, we carry round argentium wire in 16 to 24-gauge, in both dead soft and half hard. Make a fine piece of argentium silver jewelry your customers and friends will love with our round argentium!
Silver is a fine, naturally occurring precious metal with an almost white sheen that is used for many purposes including jewelry making. Ordinary sterling silver is a mix of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. Wire-Sculpture's argentium sterling silver wire replaces some of the copper with the element germanium. The germanium, coupled with the silver and copper, creates a fine piece of anti-tarnish silver wire that your customers will love to wear!

Wire can be the glue that holds your jewelry together, or it can shine as the focal point for the entire work. Whether you’re into chainmaille, beading, wire sculpture and wire jewelry making, or even name writing, we have the perfect wire for you.
