This dead-soft, 14-karat yellow gold sheet is suitable for photo etching and offers the benefit of having fabrication metal ready when you need it; keep sheet on hand and 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 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.
This yellow gold sheet can be ordered in sizes up to 6" x 6" (larger dimensions can be special ordered); due to the cutting capabilities of the shear, minimum purchase is 1" x 1/2".
