Sterling Silver Wire, Round, 20ga, Half Hard #64-327

SKU 64-327
20-gauge half-hard round 925 sterling silver wire for jewelry. This wire is tempered, perfect for wire wrapping. Half hard wire is good for making components that need to hold their shape, such as ear wires and clasps. 20ga is a popular diameter for creating earring components, and it can be pulled through a drawplate to make it springier and reduce the diameter to 21ga (the most popular earring wire diameter in the US). There are approximately 18.9 feet per troy ounce (ozt) of 20-gauge sterling silver round wire. We normally pre-cut our wire to 1-ozt lengths (+/- 20%), so please let us know if you need wire in one piece longer than an ozt (troy ounce). Number of feet per ozt is approximate; your invoice will reflect actual charges for exact weight of wire shipped.

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!

Item just as described

This is my first time ordering SS wire. Half hard is a bit harder than I expected ...or maybe my fingers are a bit more tender!

Too tightly spooled

I love the sturdiness of this wire, but I wish it wasn't wound so tightly on a small spool. The tight coiling on the plastic spool makes it more difficult to work with when you remove it from the roll. I kept getting poked in the eye and cut my fingers because it would spin around so much. It took some extra time to straighten out enough to work with. A looser coil would make all the difference in the world.
