This 11mm, 22-gauge, soft Argentium® Silver round disc features a bright white color and is ideal for shaping into components for your designs. The disc is die struck with clean, crisp edges and will require some finishing to smooth its edges and polish its surface. Use dapping techniques to create concave or convex designs; make round or saucer beads using matching dapped pairs of discs. It is a perfect foundation for other findings, including bezel cups or flat-bottom prong settings, as a backdrop for wire-wrapping designs, and for personalizing with engraving or design stamps.
This disc has a soft temper; it may arrive with a slight dome and is easy to bend, shape and hammer.
Made with a touch of germanium, Argentium® Silver presents a bright white color that is closer to fine silver than traditional sterling, yet is highly resistant to firescale and less likely to tarnish under most conditions. It welds flawlessly and is ideal for fusing techniques. All Argentium is guaranteed by Argentium International Ltd. Your customers will appreciate the value and convenience of brighter-white sterling silver designs that resist tarnishing and keep on shining.
Working with Argentium Silver® is a bit different than working with traditional sterling. If you are new to using Argentium®, scroll down or visit our Resource Center (see tab above); you'll find lots of help and guidance to help you reap all the benefits this material has to offer!
