At the suggestion of a club member, I'm looking into picking up a few spools of copper wire for my Junipers I'll be working this fall. I notice that pricing for annealed copper wire for bonsai is pretty high compared to say, copper wire used in jewelry making. I haven't come up with much information comparing annealed with "dead soft" or "Half hard" wire descriptions. Would jewelry making copper wire work harden as well as annealed bonsai copper wiring? My immediate guess is that I just should pick up the bonsai wire and quit finding ways to be a cheap bastard, but figured I'd ask anyway and see what others' experiences are in the community.
