Now you can retain the beauty of pure sterling silver throughout your entire design. Use this pure, solid .925 Sterling Silver beading wire with sterling components to make precious, classic jewelry. Seven strands of .925 Sterling Silver wire are stranded together, then covered with a smooth, clear nylon coating for increased abrasion and kink resistance. We recommend using this .925 Sterling Silver wire for your finer quality, more precious beaded jewelry. For added strength and abrasion resistance that extended-wear designs require, we suggest using our value-priced silver plated wire, Silver Color 7 Strand.
