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 was made from a single 3/4" wide piece of Argentium silver sheet. After annealing it was run through a rolling mill to apply the beautiful "plaid" pattern. Two short pieces of half-round sterling silver wire were soldered on, along with a melted ball of Argentium wire. A patina was applied to bring out the texture of the piece. Since it is Argentium it does not need to be sealed to prevent tarnish.
The pieces measures 3/4" wide with a 2" center opening.
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.
