This gauge is extremely versatile and can be used in a range of wire working techniques. From making your own earring loops to cuff bracelets, 20 gauge will serve many wire working needs.
Half-hard wire has been hardened but is still very malleable. Because it has been hardened, half-hard wire will maintain a loop, bend or shape under some stress. Half-hard wire is commonly used when making wire-wrapped jewelry or simple loops.
Made with a touch of germanium, Argentium® Silver presents a bright white color that is closer to fine silver than traditional sterling, yet is highly resistant to firescale and extremely slow to tarnish under most conditions. With 93.5% pure silver, Argentium meets the legal standard to be quality-marked as sterling silver.
