ParaWire is soft, but strong. Metallic colors are 99% pure copper wire with ParaWire’s exclusive non tarnish coating. Silver plated colors are 99% pure smooth copper wire which are then plated with 99% pure fine silver and finished with ParaWire’s exclusive non-tarnish enamel color coating. This proprietary coloring process produces illustriously bright colors with a beautiful resilient finish. Bare wire options are untreated metal. Vintaj Parawire has been carefully colored to match the color palette of Vintaj findings.
