Why use filled metals in your jewelry? Filled metals are more affordable! 14-karat gold-filled wire is a fraction of the cost of a solid gold alloy, and still has the luster and  beauty of our favorite yellow metal. Silver-filled wire and sheet also offer interesting uses for combining the look of silver and base metals in your jewelry. But the affordable price tag of filled metals comes with a hidden cost: Treat it badly, and you’ll expose the base-metal core and blemish your design. Taking the time to learn the extra skills required to fabricate with filled metals translates into better results with any alloy, even the solid ones. by Joe Silvera
