Argentium can be a challenging metal. It took me weeks to undo my attachment to fabricating in Sterling in just learning to fuse Argentium. It’s a learning curve for sure. When you master the fusing temperature, fabricating speeds up because you don’t have to solder everything. In a six week class, it took me about four and a half weeks to get it right. Not different than learning to drive a standard shift camper van left handed in New Zealand. After awhile it feels natural.
For delicate ear wires, and thin sheet, you can heat harden adding stability and durability.
