This dead-soft 26-gauge Argentium® Silver sheet offers the benefit of having fabrication metal on hand when you need it; custom-cut it to the exact size and shape your design requires. (And collect all your scraps—you'll help recycle precious metals and collect cash for your efforts). Dead soft Argentium® Silver sheet is easy to bend, shape and hammer; it is an ideal starting point for forming, shaping and wire-wrapping. Keep in mind that hardness is changeable (by annealing or heat-hardening) and is relative among metal types (each temper will feel and handle differently from one metal to another). When finishing your pieces, also keep in mind that the harder the metal is, the brighter a finish it will take.
Argentium Silver® sheet can be ordered in sizes up to 6" x 36"; at least one dimension must be 6". Due to the cutting capabilities of the shear, minimum purchase is 6" x 1/4".
Made with a touch of germanium, Argentium® Silver presents a bright white color that is closer to fine silver than traditional sterling, yet is highly resistant to firescale and extremely slow to tarnish under most conditions. It welds flawlessly and is ideal for fusing techniques. All Argentium is made from reclaimed silver and its sources are guaranteed by Argentium International Ltd. Your customers will appreciate the value and convenience of brighter-white sterling silver designs that resist tarnishing and keep on shining.
Working with Argentium Silver® is a bit different than working with traditional sterling. If you are new to using Argentium, visit the "Videos, Projects, Classes & More" tab on this page; you'll find lots of help and guidance to help you reap all the benefits this material has to offer!
