I can’t believe it’s not silver! Nickel silver, a.k.a. German silver or new silver, does not actually contain any silver at all. Nickel silver jewelry wire gets its name from the fact that it has the same bright white shine of silver, but it is actually an alloy of copper, nickel and sometimes zinc. Not only is nickel silver jewelry wire a great economic alternative to sterling silver jewelry wire, but it’s also highly resistant to corrosion – it’s a malleable, yet durable choice for jewelry makers. Available in round, square, and half round, we stock nickel wire in both dead soft and half hard. We have a wide range of gauges available, from 12-gauge to 24-gauge nickel wire. Make a beautiful piece of wire jewelry for your customers to cherish with our German silver wire! Keep your wire shining brightly with our polishing cloths
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.
