|A hard metal tool used as the base when hammering wire. Similar to a blacksmith's anvil in shape, but significantly smaller, an anvil is shown at right. Anvils are often used with a chasing hammer to harden jewelry wire components and can be used to flatten wire. View anvils in our store here.|
|This is a new, patented alloy of silver and includes 92.5% silver just like sterling silver, but replaces some of the copper in sterling silver with germanium to provide tarnish resistance. Argentium Sterling Silver will tarnish, but it tarnishes at a slower rate than sterling silver and the resulting tarnish is light yellow in color and washes off with soap and water. Select here for a comparison of Argentium to other jewelry making wire.|
|Artistic Wire||Artistic Wire is a manufacturer of wire used for craft projects and for making jewelry. Artistic Wire makes silver-plated, brightly colored wire, vinly coated copper colored wire, and natural copper and brass wire. By using enamel or vinyl coatings on their wire, many types of Artistic Wire will not tarnish with normal wear and tear.|
