    Be aware brass is stiffer than copper naturally. This brass is amazing, very workable, bright shiny gold. if you plan on using LOS be aware it takes a lot longer to patina than copper but well worth it!

    I’ve just received my order of Jeweler’s Bronze Wire and it is great. I’m looking forward to making my creations with this wire! Thank you again Parawire!

    My ears are extremely sensitive to most metals, even the enameled Parawire, and yet, I was able to wear the bronze for a very long time before any reaction.

    I have been looking for a wire that will behave nicely when fused with glass in a kiln. In general that means no coated wire but also a metal that doesn’t spit little black bits in the kiln. The Parawire folks helped me try out their selection of bare wire and I like the way their brass and jeweler’s bronze behave. While they do tarnish in the high temperatures of the kiln they keep it on the exposed wire. Sadly bare copper likes to shoot off little black bits (spalling?) when exposed to the air of a hot kiln.
    I have made several pieces and this bronze looks good after a wash in the pickle and a bit of polishing. This has a more “10k gold” look to it and makes a nice contrast with their brass wire. It’s a great wire to add to my fused glass. Very happy with the wire and the service and help I got from Parawire 🙂

    A beautiful gold toned wire. As thin as 26 gauge is, this wire can withstand much more pressure before breaking in comparison to other wires at this gauge.

    I really enjoy working with the bronze when a slightly stiffer material is needed. It shapes beautifully and ages/patinas slower than the copper, giving it a nice shade or two richer and darker over the months. This makes sculptural pieces look even lovelier with time. You can also artificially patina it darker as needed which is great. Personally I love the tone and how it gradually darkens, it really sets pieces off and gives a sense of value and significance. Very happy with Parawire quality and service.
