Argentium Hollow Bead
A multitude of uses - A bead is a small, decorative object that is usually pierced for threading or stringing. I will be teaching a class showing how to create a hollow bead of Argentium Silver. I’ll be demonstrating and teaching fusing Argentium Silver. For those of you who have tried to “sweat” solder sterling silver and had a frustrating experience, come and learn the joy of fusing Argentium. Also there is no fire scale to add more finishing time spent polishing the purple stain away. It’s more fun to spend time creating and not at the buffing wheel.
I absolutily love working with argentium silver, I’ve learned to use the unique properties of Argentium to make the metal work to my design’s advantage.
