This dead-soft 28-gauge fine silver bezel strip is an economical way to get just the right amount of material in the gauges you need. This strip is useful for forming custom-shaped or larger bezel mountings or for making bezel backings for small stones. It is suitable for use with silver metal clay, enamel and granulation techniques. Dead soft fine silver bezel strip 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.
This strip is packaged in coils and can be cut to any length that satisfies the system minimum. Orders must weigh at least 0.01 ozt.; if you click 'Add to Cart' for a quantity less than this, the cart will offer a prompt to let you know what the minimum for this item is.
Fine silver, .999% pure, does not tarnish and is an ideal foundation for enameling as well as for texturing the metal with reticulation techniques. Pure silver offers a bright white color and is best suited for jewelry pieces not exposed to daily wear and tear.
