I love to work with Argentium sterling silver wire! To make some of my jewelry I use a torch to make a ball on the end of the wire. Working with copper or regular sterling silver you got a fire scale and the ball is moderately pitted (sterling silver) or slightly pitted (copper). With Argentium sterling silver wire the ball is smooth!
This pair of Orbital earrings is made with argentium sterling silver wire and green faceted malachite (imitation) beads.
Pretty and delicate, these earrings are made with green goldstone beads.
Argentium sterling silver wire replaces some of the copper with the
element germanium, and by definition, Argentium never contains less than
93% true silver. The germanium, coupled with the silver and copper,
creates a fine piece of anti-tarnish silver wire that you will love to
Do you have some single unusual beads and do not know what to do with them? I had a pink coral beads for 5 years or so. I even do not remember where I got it. Today, finally, it happened! :) I made a pendant out of it.
I used sterling silver
filled wire, sterling silver beads and this pink free-form coral bead.
The pendant measures about 2"(5 cm). Comes with sterling silver filled 18" chain (46cm)
The pendant is very unusual and will make a nice conversation piece!
