The Black Wire or Stealth Sterling as I like to call it is made through simple chemistry. I am basically using a jewelry patina which speeds up the oxidation process of the silver and turns it black. The black color is not permanent, eventually the pendant will adapt to the wearer and the black will transform into shiny silver on the high spots.
