This 1/2-hard fine silver cloisonné bezel strip is perfect for creating cloisons (compartments) for enamel work. It is ideal for setting stones; use the wire to create custom settings for cabochons, cameos and other flat-back stones or findings. Metal that is 1/2-hard 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.
