Description

This spring-hard, sterling silver sheet features a mirror finish and 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. (And collect all your scraps—you'll help recycle precious metals and collect cash for your efforts). Spring-hard sterling silver has little malleability and tends to spring back toward its original shape when bent by hand. This hardness is ideal for metal-etching and for ear wires, jump rings and head pins. 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.

18-gauge sheet is useful for pendants, mid- and narrow-width ring shanks and for cuff bracelets. As you know, metal sheet has as many uses as there are jewelers and designers who use it to achieve their vision; these suggested uses simply represent some of the more common applications of this metal weight.

This sterling silver sheet is sold in sizes up to 4" x 36" (one dimension must be 4"); due to the cutting capabilities of the shear, minimum purchase is 4" x 1/4".

Please Note: • We strive to measure quantities ordered as closely as possible; however, due to manufacturing tolerances at the mill, please allow for a ±10% variance when ordering.
IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling silver by keeping it in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store metals in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.

• A 15% restocking fee applies to returns of custom cut-to-order metals.
