    As far as precious metals go, here is the only Sterling Silver called Argentium Silver that will 'not' tarnish. Will have a minimum of 92.5% silver in it

    Fine Silver is another but that gives a different look and is not as strong as Sterling Silver depending on how it's used. It has 99.9% silver in it.

    I don't use Argentium Silver, it's still too expensive yet and I only use Fine Silver for my 'Loop-in-Loop' designs

      One of my suppliers sell a non-tarnish wire. I've ordered some by curiosity.... I'll get it next week I think.

        I tend to get silver plated chains,are they any good?

        I could get a non metal tarnish lacquer but then Im wondering if the lacquer will irritate skin?!!
