We have been looking for alternatives to solid sterling silver every since it became expensive. We offer several: stainless steel, fine silver with a copper core....and now Silver Filled!
And we have tried OTHER Silver Filled wire and found them to have: visible copper core, soft, thin coating, inconsistent sizing and fragile.
Materials: wire that is made in the usa, does not contain nickel or lead, silver filled square wire.
