Make your own stainless steel findings and wire wrapped beads.
Purchase in these larger rolls of 316L grade stainless steel wire. If you use a lot of stainless steel wire this is an inexpensive way to purchase it. You don't have to worry about running low so quickly as each roll is a full 1/4 pound of wire!
Stainless steel wire in is perfect for making hypoallergenic jewelry findings and for many other applications. This is fully annealed dead soft BUT stainless steel still tends to be harder than copper. This wire is softer than some other stainless steel wire I carry. To my wire working hands it feels to be between dead soft and half hard in temper.
Like all stainless steel wire this is not a shiny wire. It is closer to a matte finish. Lovely for a vintage or muted look. However, it will not darken on you!
