Artistic Wire is the most extensive line of permanently colored copper wire for jewelry and crafts. The wire has an exclusive enamel coating that is available with a high-shine metallic finish. The coating is engineered to resist tarnishing, chipping, and peeling and to stand up to coiling, spiral making, twisting, wrapping, and other wire working techniques.
You can form Artistic Wire easily into jewelry components such as chain maille, beaded chain, jump rings, ear wires, wire wrapped pendants, gemstone settings, and more. Use our wide range of tools including round nose pliers, chain nose pliers, hammers and anvils, jigs, jump ring makers, spiral makers, wire twisting tools, wire crinkling tools, wire rounder, wire writer tool, and more.
Artistic Wire is nickel-free and lead-safe with less than 5 ppm (parts per million) lead in the copper portion and less than 1 ppm lead in the coating. These levels are well under the 1000 ppm threshold level for lead listed in the European Union Directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS Restriction of Hazardous Substances).
