I have been looking for alternatives to solid sterling silver every since it went over $20 an ounce. I offer several; stainless steel, fine silver with a copper core and now Silver Filled.
I have tried other silver filled wires and found them to have: visible copper core, soft, thin coating, inconsistent sizing, fragile. The wire I use to make these is so much better than that.
