Ideal for enameling as well as formed designs, this dead-soft 24-gauge patterned copper sheet features a liquid-look pattern and is a great choice for a variety of jewelry-making techniques. 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. Dead soft copper 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.
Sold in 6" x 12" sheets; approximately .47 lb.
The color of copper is popular for a variety of mixed-metal and alternative metal designs; its affordability adds an additional facet to its popularity for both maker and clients. For some customers, the perceived spiritual/medicinal properties contribute yet another facet—especially for cuff and bangle bracelet designs.
