Have you ever dreamed of working in a form of Sterling, where you need not worry about fire scale, tarnish issues and the environmental impact of its sourcing? Search no longer, your dreams have come true: Argentium Sterling, the purest white of all jewelry alloys is now readily available. It is a silversmith's dream! Explore the range of its unique properties with a focus on its advantages over traditional Sterling. Learn about annealing, precipitation hardening, brazing and fusing, finishing including surface passivation, (which activates the tarnish resistance) etc. For experienced jewelers, it will be a contrast and comparison class, for beginners an ideal class to enter into the world of precious metals. You will never look back.
