This soft fine silver seamless extruded tubing is ideal for a wide range of fabrication tasks. Use it to create hinges for movable component parts, to create linings for bead holes with our beadliner machine (to protect both the bead and the cord), to create eyelets or rivets for cold connections, or to create spring bars for custom watch bands. Soft fine silver tubing 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 tubing is packaged in pre-cut 12" lengths; minimum order is 1 piece.
Fine silver, .999% pure, offers a bright white color and is best suited for jewelry pieces not exposed to daily wear and tear.
• IMPORTANT: As a supplier to the jewelry trade, Rio Grande strongly discourages any medical use of our fabrication metals. Your safety is important to us; therefore, we do not accept orders of fine silver for any purpose that includes ingesting, injecting, implanting or applying it topically. Do not use Rio Grande fine silver for colloidal purposes.
• To create settings with heavy-wall tubing, the inside diameter of the tubing must be smaller than the stone.
