Enjoy the look and workability of sterling silver at a much more affordable price! The thickness of the sterling silver overlay on this high-quality sterling silver-filled sheet constitutes a full 1/10th of its overall weight (twice the content of 1/20 silver-filled sheet of the same gauge). This thicker silver layer lets you form the metal, polish it—even do light engraving—without exposing the brass underneath.
The sterling has a light brushed finish and is bonded to a brass core (CDA #220; 90% copper/10% zinc).
Because of the difference in color between the brass substrate and the silver exterior, this material also offers some design possibilities when treated as a bi-metal. By strategically sanding, cutting, polishing and so on, you can create some incredible, unusual effects.
