I have this sterling silver wire custom made for me with rounded edges (lengthwise), although in this wire (which is thinner than the 5mm x 1.5mm wire) the rounded edges are less noticeable. When this wire is made into a bangle, the rounded edges give the bracelet a more finished look. This wire is dead soft, which works well with stamping, but it is quite thick so it naturally has a bit of hardness. The stamping and shaping harden it enough to stay stiff in a nice cuff or bangle shape.
I use this wire to make cuffs (no clasp) with stamping on it, or wire wrapped beads on it... or both! Make sure you have a good file that will smooth out the cuff ends. I like the beefy ones that I carry because they remove a lot of material in a small amount of time, and then I just work it a bit with fine grit sandpaper (which can be found at a hardware store).
Lisa Niven Kelly uses flat wire in her Say It On Your Wrist, Stamped Cuff class.
Great finish, easy to use, took hardly any time to finish my first ever soldered silver bangle, thanks, great product.
I love this wire. It is perfect for stamping. Nothing better!
Excellent quality and great to work with for multiple types of projects. I will be purchasing again.
This is some of the best wire, really easy to work with and a great price!
Love this flat wire!!! The rounded edges are a life saver!!!
