there is no problem with Argentium Silver in thin gauges. I have
purchased 30 gauge from other sources, such as Rio Grande, Allcraft,
Hauser and Miller, Stuller, and G&S Gold. In fact, I have rolled it
to 32 gauge for pleating microfolded metal. As always with AS, just
be aware of how little heat it requires, since AS is less heat
conductive than SS.
I apologize for the belated response----I’ve been traveling a lot
this month—first in Hawaii to teach a hydraulic press workshop, and
now in England, where I presented and demonstrated about Argentium
Silver to the Association for Contemporary Jewellery last week, and
will be teaching about Microfolding and Argentium in Birmingham, next
I have recently updated the technical guide to AS that I wrote for
Rio Grande, and it will be downloadable from their site soon.
