Sterling silver is such an amazing metal.  It's strong but is easy to hammer, etch, texture, roll, and torch and still be shined back to brilliant!  Lately I've been working with argentium silver sheet and wire, which is stronger and is very tarnish resistant.

 

This bracelet, one of my favorites, was made from 22g argentium silver sheet.  The large squares are 1 1/2" and the smaller rectangles are 3/4" wide by 1 1/2" long.  Before cutting them into shapes, the sheet was run through a rolling mill to get the great texture.  A patina was applied to bring out the beautiful patterns. 

 

The pieces are assembled with 8mm sterling silver jump rings.  The clasp is a type of hook and eye.  The finished piece measures 6" long and fits a 5" to 6" wrist.

  • Even though this is Argentium silver and should not tarnish, I do send an anti-tarnish pad with each piece which should be kept with the bracelet when not worn.
