Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I am new to using wire in my crafts but this was the perfect choice for me! I needed a black wire for my paper Ladybugs and this wire worked beautifully. It bends easily by hand but I used small jewelry-making pliers for the curls at the ends of the antennae. I've attached a photo so you can see how smoothly it curls. I only had a problem with the black paint coating coming off the wire if I curled, straightened, and re-curled a single wire multiple times. If using for crafts or card-making, you'll be happy to know that this wire can be attached to card stock using non-toxic craft glue. I love this stuff and will continue to buy it!
Wire is dead soft and easy to work. However, the coating flakes off FAR too easily... essentially with any manipulation of the wire using pliers. Ruins the appearance of the jewelry immediately. I won't purchase again.
Just what I needed! Used this to string between hooks on a photo frame & then hang photos from with clothespins. The wire is strong enough to hold the photos & clothespins, but small enough to be unobtrusive to the overall vibe of the photo display. Also easily breaks if you bend it a couple times if you don't happen to have wire cutters around.
