Silver Wire

Dear friends,
…I have used your products before and am grateful you are out there! Last month I bought some silver wire with the expectation of doing some soldering.

However, it has proven harder than it was a few years ago. That’s why I now want to buy the electrodes with the silver wire already attached. Then I just plug that into my batteries and am good to go. I made one mistake buying the silver; I don’t want to make another. I’m just checking up before I do. Thank you for taking the time to read my message.

Hello Lora,
Thanks for the nice comment. The silver you have sounds like sterling silver, which is used to make jewelry. It is not pure, but contains either copper or nickel, added to the silver to make it more durable. Do not use Nickel for making colloidal silver.
