Two questions: What is this "german-style" wire I keep hearing about? and, How can you only charge $5,7-15? That has to be just a little bit more than your cost of supplies.

Oh, and this is a nice pendant, keep up the good work. Nice combining of square and round wires. I like square wire but it's very brittle if you bend it the wrong way it'll just snap off.

The 'German-style' wire is a wire that has a copper core, but is plated in silver. It's a lot less expensive than buying sterling or argentium silver, but, it offers a very similar look. Parawire sells plated wire with a non-tarnish coating on it relatively inexpensive. My prices are a matter of supply and demand. Items made with the silver-plated wire are priced higher to reflect the cost of the materials. I'm not going over $15 too often, though because, admittedly, they aren't exactly selling like hotcakes at the moment, and raising prices won't make them look any more attractive.

I appreciate the nice comment, though. I haven't had any square wire break, yet, but, I do adore the look of it.

Thanks. I mainly use round wire for its versatility, but I love how square wire has 4 faces that flash when the light hits them.

Me too. I think square wire has a particularly nice 'flowy' look when it's used right. You should check out :iconnambroth:'s pendants, if you haven't, already.

Thanks for the link, I think I saw some of her pendants before but never went to her gallery, she's good.

I have only a few inches of square wire left and I'm finding ways to incorporate them into earrings.
