[Source] Argentium Sterling Silver

Can anyone suggest an updated suppliers list for the new Argentium
alloy? 

I have heard back on this Argentium supply issue and have been told
that indeed the Thessco contract has ended and negotiations are
underway with a “larger European supplier”.

In the meantime the following was mentioned as a possible European
source. At this point all I know is their contact details which are:

Kultakeskus Oy
PO Box 26
Fin-13101
Hameenlinna
FINLAND

Contact name:
Tony Jackson
Tel No. +358 3 65 711

I also have an email address for Kultakeskus which I’ll happily share
with anyone that cares to ask me offlist.

Cheers,
Trevor F.

For those of you interested in getting Argentium from a European
supplier I can now heartily recommend Kultakeskus in Finland. Anthony
Jackson was my contact there and he very helpful in working with me to
get the raw material at an attractive price. I wanted to avoid
fabrication costs so I placed an order for a 1.5 kg ingot which I hope
to receive in a few days.

Kultakeskus is mentioned at
http://www.silversmithing.com/1argentium.htm and their website is
http://www.kultakeskus.fi/

For those of you who might be interested I’ve started a blog to chat
about my day-to-day experience of working with Argentium. The blog is
called “Working with Argentium Silver” and is hosted at
http://www.touchmetal.com/blog/argentium-blog.html As ever your
comments are most welcome and the blog provides a facility for same.
