    Default Problems with gold/silver plated jewellery wire.

    Hi,

    I have been doing beading jewellery for a year now, and have also done some wirework jewellery. Unfortunately many of my wirework pieces become tarnished after a very short time. I buy the wire from the popular beading sites but none of them seem to last. If buying sterling silver or real gold is the only alternative this is very expensive. I really need help and guidance.

    Look forward to your reply.

    as you say Sooz the silver plate wire does get tarnished quite quickly but this can easily be cleaned up with a soft jewellers cloth or some soapy water and a soft brush. Try keeping your pieces in box with some silica gel packs and see if this keeps them from tarnishing so quckly

    Okay - will do that. Many thanks. Will this work for the gold plated wire as well?
