This is non tarnishing Amethyst enameled coated copper Artistic Wire. The base metal is copper so this has a nice substantial weight.
First the wire is silver plated and then the lovely amethyst color is applied. Finally a clear enamel coating is baked on. It is perfect for light to medium duty projects. Because this process requires extra steps and silver plating, silvered wires cost a bit more.
