Bronze Wire is Finally Here!



I think bronze is a grogeous metal and I've always wanted to work with it but found it difficult to find in dead soft temper and impossible to find in some gauges. So after some extensive reseach, I finally found a company who could produce what I wanted and my shipment finally arrived. I'm now offering phosphor bronze wire for jewelry makers in my Artfire shop packaged in approximately one ounce coils in gauges 14, 16, 18, 20, 24 and 26.
This wire is not brass-it's a true copper/ tin bronze alloy and it's already
annealed dead soft. The color is beautiful-not as yellow as brass and not as
red as copper, more like a rosy gold. There is more info in my shop but feel
free to contact me if you have any questions.

  2. what kind of solder do you use with this? i've been working with bronze and have trouble finding solder to use it. it turns pinky copper color when you heat it and it must be picked in HP solution to restore the color. The pickle solution als turns all the solder i have tried to use to silver. (brass and bronze and gold filled solder too)
