Plated Metals

The wire used in all plated items is copper that has been coated with either a colored enamel, or plated with .999 pure silver, which is then left as the natural silver color or further coated with a colored enamel over the plating to give a shiny luster. All plated wire is then coated with a nylon layer to provide a tarnish-resistant finish. The wire finish is very durable under normal wear and tear, but it is advised to keep the jewelry away from excessive moisture or harsh abrasives (i.e. don't shower in it).
