Silver filled wire is a wonderful option for crafters and artisans who want to make precious silver jewelry but don't want the high cost of solid sterling or fine silver! Silver fill is made by using heat and pressure to apply a thick layer of silver to a base of less costly metal. This produces a silver surface that is 100's of times thicker than a plating. All silver filled jewelry supplies at Rings & Things contain at least 1/20th silver by weight. Choose from dead soft and half hard silver fill wire in several gauges. Round, half-round, and square wire are all available.
