I have a concept for a locket that I’d love to make in Argentium,
but it looks like it’d work best with part of it in (formed) 28-ga.
sheet. Now, when I tried to order this from H&S, they said they only
went down to 26-ga., so I got that. figuring I could roll it thinner
if I had to. (I tried 24 ga and it didn’t do what I need it to do.)
But now I’m wondering: is the reason they don’t sell it in 28-ga is
that it’s impossible to work with then? I know hot Argentium has
slumping and brittleness problems, but I’m figuring on 1 soldering
operation using easy Argentium solder.
Should I just use regular sterling for that part?
Any insights will be appreciated!
