This 18 gauge wire is my go to for creating custom findings, particularly clasps. The quality and consistency of the product is always the same; A+.
Soft Flex Craft Wire is a high quality, permanently colored copper wire. It is resistant to scratching, peeling and marring. This is due to the special enameling process used to coat the wire to produce the wide spectrum of colors we offer. After the enamel is applied, the wire is then clear coated to prevent tarnishing. Bare Copper is the only wire in the line that is not treated. If antiques and old findings are your medium, Bare Copper will patina - perfect for making that new project look like an heirloom.
Quality Soft Flex Craft Wire is 100% lead and nickel free. There are no other metals used in the wire production other than copper and fine silver. The temper of the wire is soft. It can be tempered to half hard. If you need to harden up your wire for ear wires or other findings, you may use a nylon hammer or wire whacker to work harden your project. Using a nylon hammer or wire whacker will allow the wire to work harden without marring or flattening the wire. An exceptional design idea deserves a professional craft wire.
Note: Silver plated Craft Wire colors may be affected when used for Viking Knit and drawn down using a draw plate.
Bulk Option: one pound bulk spools of Soft Flex Craft Wire are available upon request. Please call Customer Service for pricing and delivery time.

Very pleased with the quality and color of the craft wire.
I wire wrap stones into amulets. Soft flex wire is the best especially vintage bronze. I’ve been using this wire for years.
