A & E have the flying unicorn stamps now. Ordered mine today.
A & E say that many people are now using Argentium and are selling a
I only have three pieces of sterling left plus some castings I can’t
get in Argentium.
It has been so hard to sell the sterling once people see the colour
of Argentium. And the customers love the low tarnish quality.
Australians are early adopters of technology and looks like we are
taking to Argentium on mass. Now it is available.
We tend to read instructions too so those who read them from Cynthia
Eid and Argentium International have a very shallow learning curve
With a few weeks practise I now find it easier to work than sterling
and so much faster to fabricate.
I have now 100% success with fusing, needed to use more flux was
So us in OZ need to give a big thank you to Cynthia Eid for getting
A & E to make Argentium.
I will only use sterling for reticulation as Argentium will not get
the extreme texture I like.
But I fuse and reticulate my Argentium lemel. I wanted to take some
photos but sold the pieces within minutes of putting them on display,
so no time for a photo yet.
One thing though use a clean oven to cook Argentium. My wife bought
me a cheap $80 one to cook the Argentium works a treat.
Also A & E will do special orders in Argentium minimum of 50 grams
and a bit more expensive than standard Argentium prices. But well
worth the extra cost as the labour saving is great.
My mobius rings (special order wire) cost about a $1 more than
sterling but fabricate so much faster that the saving on labour cost
makes them cheaper to make. And I sell them for the same price better
metal and better profit. How cool is that?
all the best
