24 gauge Double Silver Plated Wire for Jewelry Designers - NOT Copper
20 feet of 24 gauge. The factory that makes this wire has told me this is Double Silver Plated (it is very tough to be sure) and the center is Alpaca. While Alpaca Wire is also known as Nickle Silver, German Silver they are very sure that this does not contain Nickle. I am rather sensitive myself and this does not give me any reaction, this could be either from the wire being very well plated with silver or that it indeed doesn't have Nickle in it. I tend to believe them, they have no need to lie about it. I have done business with them for years. This wire does not have a copper core.
It is wonderful wire, does not seem to tarnish for me, could be the weather I have here too though, usually Silver Plated wire will tarnish. I imagine this would too after quite some time.
I am only offering this for variety, and I would like to get any feedback from it you can offer us. It is rather expensive, compared to brass or bronze, copper wires....this is more stiff than brass, copper as well. It is very similar in stiffness compared to our Gunmetal Wire. It is really nice to work with.
We have 24, 22, 20 gauge available in our shop.

Shipping for us is more expensive than in the US, but we pay the difference, because we don't want that to stop you from purchasing from us. The mail is very safe and we only ship via Registered Mail.
US Customs has stepped up processing of incoming packages to the US, it can take up to 20 working days for things to reach you. Most of the time it is only 10 days, but we never know how saturated US Customs is. Our packages reach the US in approx 3 days (but then sit in US Customs until they get to them). It isn't us that delay the shipping. So please be patient.
The headpins are perfect and the lampwork beads so very pretty. They are gorgeous thank you. Also many thanks for the gift which is very much appreciated kindest regards Maxine
