Argentium® 1: Fabrication, Granulation and Textures

Argentium® is a recently formulated alloy of sterling silver with traces of element Germanium, which makes it especially attractive for jewelers. Unlike other tarnish-resistant alloys of sterling silver, Argentium® fuses well, making it ideal for fabrication and especially granulation. Here is a chance to learn to work in Argentium®, learn classic granulation and new textures, too. Students fabricate three projects: earrings, a hollow pendant and a layered band ring with a bezel setting. Instruction includes special considerations, tips and more! 24 hours

Prerequisite: Fabrication 2 or experience.
