Sterling Silver Heart Stamping, 28-Ga.



Description

This 28-gauge, 5.5 x 4.5mm sterling silver heart stamping features a classic shape and is ideal for forming into components for your designs. The shape of this stamping gives you more scope for design variation—drill a hole on one side of the heart to hang off center, in the middle to hang evenly, or at the bottom to hold a drop or a mounted gemstone. The stamping is die struck with clean, crisp edges and may require some finishing to smooth its edges and polish its surface. Use dapping techniques to create concave or convex designs, use it as a 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.

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 findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
