The silver-plated colors are more vibrant and have a higher shine than the regular colors. Bare copper is un-coated copper wire. Natural copper is coated to prevent tarnishing. Brass wire is brass not copper. Stainless steel is also not copper.
Notes: Some color variation may be noticeable between gauges. Some Artistic Wire hues have a tint range of ±10%. Packaging (the spool) is changing so the wire you receive may be on a different type spool.
