This 1/2-hard, sterling silver sheet features a satin brushed finish and is ideal for raising. 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. (And collect all your scraps—you'll help recycle precious metals and collect cash for your efforts). Metal that is 1/2-hard is 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.
Sold in sizes up to 12" x 36" (one dimension must be 12"); due to the cutting capabilities of the shear, minimum purchase is 12" x 1/2".
