Drop the solder! This Mini Series workshop serves as an excellent introduction to fusing Argentium silver. Students will learn about differences between Argentium and Sterling silver, and how the properties of Argentium lend themselves to fusion. Students will fabricate a double-banded ring, fusing the cut ends of each band to first seal the individual bands, and then fusing the two completed bands together.
Bring your metalsmithing toolbox, including:
-Argentium Silver round wire (14-18ga) 300mm length*
-Saw frame & blades
-Equalling needle file (flat on both sides)
-Sandpaper (180-400 grit)*
*The instructor will have limited quanitities of these items available for purchase
