Argentium Sterling Wire - Dead Soft


 
Argentium is a special alloy containing the element germanium which gives the metal amazing anti-tarnish properties. Use Argentium wire to fabricate earwires, components and findings. With Silver-Prep you can prepare sterling silver to fire directly in place with metal clay.

Heat Hardening Sterling Silver: Place items in kiln to be hardened. Fast ramp to 750F and hold for 30 minutes. Remove and quench if possible. Quenching quickly realigns the crystal structure to result in additional hardness. Do not quench any metal containing stones, glass or other non-metallic embedded items.
