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 22g argentium silver sheet and 20g brass sheet.  The rectangles are 1/2" wide by 1 1/2" long.  Before cutting them into shapes, the sheets were run through a rolling mill to get the great snake like textures.  A patina was applied to bring out those fun textures.  Because of the brass I sealed the bracelet with a spray sealer and let dry.

 

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

  • There is both argentium silver and brass in this bracelet so it was sprayed to help prevent tarnish. I do send an anti-tarnish pad with each piece which should be kept with the bracelet when not worn.
