Offer your customers popular pink gold at a fraction of the cost with this 1/2-hard, 12/20 pink gold-filled single-clad sheet. Because it is bonded to brass, this sheet can be used to create intriguing two-tone, bi-metal styles. 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). Metal that is 1/2-hard is partially work-hardened and will hold its shape under some stress; ideal for forming structures that will support other components. 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 sheet is stocked in 4" x 36" sheets; at least one dimension must be 4". Due to the cutting capabilities of the shear, minimum purchase is 4" x 1/2".
Gold-filled materials allow you to design and fabricate using the desirable color of karat gold while preserving a more affordable price point than is possible with solid gold. Its economical cost allows a greater latitude for trying out new designs or creating lines of fashion jewelry items. Because this material is single-clad, the total gold weight is bonded to one side of the substrate only.
