Argentium Sterling is everything you wish you had in regular copper-based sterling silver: it’s more malleable, it fuses beautifully, it’s easier to polish after soldering, it isn't prone to fire stain when soldered, it hardens with low heat, and best of all – it doesn’t tarnish! Argentium has the best qualities of sterling and fine silver combined.
Because this new alloy of silver and germanium behaves so differently from traditional sterling silver, it’s important to treat it like a new metal. Students will practice with Argentium as them make a simple pendant, a flower charm with a bezel set stone and a ring. You may just switch over to Argentium for all of your silver jewelry!
