Artistic Black Wire is a color-coated copper wire that is soft tempered and easy to work with. Working with coated wire may require care that you don't break the color coat. Use of nylon-jawed pliers & other "soft" tools should be used to prevent damage to the wire.
20 Gauge is a larger diameter wire measuring approx 0.81mm diameter. Because of the thickness, this wire can be a little tough to work with. If you are stringing beads make sure the thread hole on the bead is large enough to allow the wire through.
PLEASE NOTE: This wire cannot be used for electrical, welding or construction projects. It is for jewelry use only.
