Silver Filled Wire
by Cindy D.
Hi Stacy! Have you seen or used this new silver filled wire? It is suppose to be a less expensive alternative to sterling, and perform like sterling. What's your opinion?
Hi Cindy. I have never worked with silver-filled wire. Some suppliers seem to sell it for reasonable prices; others sell it for more than you can buy Sterling silver for.
Keep in mind because it's not a solid silver product, there could be some issues with tumbling, buffing or soldering. I have no idea about its durability factor. I'd be interested to read some comments here from artists who have used it.
