Tips for Working With Sterling Silver Wire & Sheet
- To keep track of different materials, mark each material with a different color of permanent marker. (Sharpies work great.)
- Any writing on wire or sheet is easily removed with acetone or fingernail polish remover.
- To prevent pliers from marring delicate, expensive materials: wrap a bit of tape around plier tips so they don't scrape or mar your wire. Nylon jaw pliers are also popular, and Tool Magic anti-scratch coating is a staff favorite!
- New to working with wire? See Wire Jewelry 101 for info about gauges, hardness, and what size of wire is best for which jewelry projects.
