I'd like to use Artistic Wire for earrings and earring findings because it's 99.9% nickel and lead free, but I've heard that because of the color coating it should not be used for earring findings.

Does anyone have some experience with this?

i posted on the other 'findings' thread, but i don't think you're supposed to use the colored or 'craft' wire as ear wires---and the silver 'art wire' may be silver-plated and if you can't use silver, then you'd be in the same shape with the 'non-tarnish silver art wire'

contact the 'artistic wire' company for the facts about it--if it can go through you ears, is it silver/gold plated, etc

that's what i'd doanyway

then you have it straight from the horse's mouth, as it were
