Dead soft Artistic Wire is a trusted brand of craft wire that comes in a full palette of colors. 24-gauge wire works great for jewelry projects that include stringing pearls and small-hole beads. The wide range of colors on this 24-gauge wire is achieved via a permanent coating placed over the wire's copper core. Some hues include a layer of silver underneath the final color, which lends extra brilliance to those shades.
