Why does this product say warning cancer/reproductive harm on the back of the packaging? Is it safe for jewelry?

Thank you for your interest in Hillman products. This product has a cancer warning due to the California's proposition 65. It is intended to help Californians make informed decisions about protecting themselves from chemicals that could cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.

It doesn't look like it's been heat treated. It's just plain old 18-gauge copper wire.

I purchased this 18-Gauge copper wire especially for Jewelry making. I would say that most likely this would work for securing tumbled stones, depending on their size and weight. Thank you for contacting Home Depot with your question.

This 18-gauge copper hobby wire is great addition to my hobby and craft room. It is 25 feet of very sturdy, yet flexible, copper wire that will be used for a variety of craft projects. I use wire for many craft applications that include flower arranging, jewelry making and many other projects. I am planning to create a unique hanging planter for a large air plant. I am sure that this wire will do the job.

This is an 18 gauge copper wire. Comes in a prepackaged roll of 25 feet and can be uncoiled in the package. Easy to use and bends easily with little effort. Very useful to hold items together without tying but simply wrapping the copper wire around the items. Also very easy to take apart when finishing the storage. This is 100% copper. Unroll what is needed before cutting. This metal will not rust.

Nice coil of bare copper wire that has many uses. Have used to hang heavy picture frames and for many hobby uses when making holiday decorations, models and other craft items. Coil comes in a convenient package that makes dispensing easy. (Also made a good temporary antenna for my radio when the original broke). Have used it for many things around the house and yard, like mending a rabbitt fence around the garden, works great.

(What's this)
This is a review of The Hillman Group's OOK 18 ga copper wire, 25' spool, Item #50161. It's made in China. First pleasant surprise ... it's in the heavier side of 18 ga; I measured a diameter of 0.043" versus standard 0.040". Second, the packaging allows for meat storage and easy use. Just don't pull it out, unwind it as you're told. Minimal tensile strength of this wire will be 20 lbs; since copper is ductile, if you were to hang 20 lbs on it, expect it to creep. For me, it's a good material for hanging lightweight pictures and bonding electrical wires before soldering.

The OOK 25 ft. 18-Gauge Copper Hobby Wire has already come in handy in installing oil painting picture frames for wall hanging displays (about 20#-25# of weight) and some craft projects around the house. We do some decorative holiday displays that require a strong but flexible wire and some jewelry builds that this 18 gauge copper wire will be right at home! The hard plastic container\dispenser is a well though out idea and protects the unused wire from unraveling...nice!!

My OOK 18-Gauge Copper Hobby Wire worked perfect to build my homopolar motor for my granddaughter. The wire is non coated, plain copper 18-gauge wire and has a 35 lbs. working strength. This copper wire can be used for art projects, science projects, hanging pictures and even as an uninsulated ground wire. A homopolar motor is a direct current electric motor with 2 magnetic poles using permanent magnets, a double AA battery and of course the 18-gauge copper wire. Many examples can be seen on youtube, just type homopolar motor.

(What's this)
I was very excited to receive this wire because I think copper is such a beautiful material and I love the color.     Every year I make my grandchildren a new Christmas ornament and this year I decided to make the hangers as well.   I have never had much success with wire work, but figured I would attempt making the ornament hangers with this 18ga Copper wire. I was very pleasantly surprised how easy it is to work with!   18ga wire can sometimes be hard to bend smoothly without kinking.   But this copper wire is flexible enough to get nice smooth curves and yet strong enough to hold the shape that I made.  I was even able to straightened the wire out again and start over when I didn't like my design.  I have never worked with a wire before that is so forgiving - usually I would have to throw out the mistake and start with a new piece of wire.  This copper wire is amazing and, obviously, Excellent quality.   You can bet that I  will be looking for more projects where I can use this product. I have included a picture below of my first attempt at making an ornament hanger.   I am, however, thinking it would look good on a necklace too.   Thank goodness this comes in a 25 ft roll because I have lots of ideas to try out. The packaging was very well thought out.   It doubles as a dispenser and storage for your copper wire.  Just pull out and cut off the amount you need; the rest of the wire remains coiled and protected inside the package.   Enjoy your projects!

I was needing this product since I just recently began doing some interesting jewelry pieces, and even several in the copper arena. The wire is just beautiful, and at 18 gauge should be strong enough for some of the heavier stones I'm using.  Copper has always fascinated me, and this 25 foot package will be put to good use starting today.  I've already shown it to one of my sisters, and she also was intrigued by it, and thought about buying some for her button creations. Very nice craft item, that I have many plans for.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This is a 25-foot continuous coil of excellent quality number 18 bare copper wire, with a bright, jewelry hobby class finish, packed in a very nice clear blister pack. It is designed to let you simply pull out only the length you need and then cut it off with even a small hobby bench sized wire cutter, while the rest stays neatly coiled and untouched inside. It can be hung for easy use on a pegboard hook or stored neatly in a drawer. The wire is Suitable for a large variety of hobby and electrical wiring purposes, and the finish is fine enough to be perfect for use in jewelry making, beading, and all manner of crafting and modeling hobbies as well. As shown in some attached pictures, I cut some samples and confirmed that this is a very soft and malleable copper, easily shaped and formed. I also confirmed that it has very good low temperature solderability and strong solder joint bonding characteristics. For the multi-interest hobbyist, and I am one, this is definitely “the good stuff”. I will find many uses for it.

(What's this)
Shiny copper wire, good for all sorts of arts and crafts, scale modeling, picture-hanging, etc. Easy to bend and solder. The actual diameter is about 0.050", or about 1.27 millimeters. 18 guage is rather small to use as ground wire for electrical purposes, at least at 120 volts, although it would do for smaller projects. The package doubles as a dispenser.
