Our 18 gauge jewelry wire is created with an exclusive coloring process, producing the brightest colors with the most resilient finish on the market. It’s excellent for making rings, loops and components, and other projects that require sturdy yet soft temper wire! Use round-nose pliers to make loops, chain- or flat-nose pliers to make bends, and heavy-duty wire cutters to cut. This wire will hold its shape beautifully in all types of applications.
Our metallic colors are 99% pure copper wire with our exclusive non-tarnish coating.
SILVER PLATED COLORS
Our silver plated colors have the same pure copper core as the metallic wires, which is then plated with 99% pure fine silver before the final color is applied.
ParaWire has the most durable coating on the market and will withstand plenty of general wear and manipulation. Please keep in mind that extended periods of direct sunlight and/or water/humidity exposure may weaken the coating and/or cause it to become faded/discolored. Be gentle and kind to your wire and it will stay beautiful for many years to come!
I buy this in the bulk for gold and silver square wire. I use it to make angel Christmas ornaments and also get the half round. Other than twisting I find this wire great but where it is a bulk spool I think it would be impossible to eliminate the twisting but a straightening tool makes short work of the twists
One of the wires I use the most. Great for making jump rings and ear wires. Also great for framed pendants and as a base for wire weaving. I love all the amazing colors options and while 18 gauge is easy to work with, it will work harden nicely to give your creations nice support and durability!

I only use Parawire for my projects that feature vibrant colors. It is the best quality and price. My students love working with this wire in the classes that I teach.
18g Stainless Steel:
It has a consistent but cloudy sheen.
i like to use 18 gauge for earring wire. some of my designs can be heavy and 20 gauge ends up a little too bendy for me. if i hammer to work harden, it gets too wide. the 18 holds its shape better for my needs. i use bare copper and age it with los.
I have been using 18 gauge power wire for the past 12 years and I love it

The 18 guage stainless steel wire is great. It may be a little difficult to cut but I use it for a lot of pieces. It is durable and does not leave they grey residue on your fingers like several of the wires I get at craft stores. The antique bronze and copper are easier to cut and are just as durable.

Bought 18ga in copper and using it as base wire for wire weaving and wrapping. Working great.
I love this wire! It is high quality and a much better deal than other wholesale companies. It was shipped very quickly(I received it within a few days of my order). I use the wire for making wire wrap jewelry. I will definitely continue doing business with Parawire for all of my future wire needs.
I buy bulk of this for my weaving. This is such great quality and much better than any other company I have found! The customer service is very helpful and kind as well.
