Session time

In the last of our Torch-fired Tuesday series, you will learn the method of fusing argentium wire together to create hoop earrings or a pendant.  The wonderful thing about argentium is that it can be fused together without the use of solder! This gives the hoops a clean join without the need of any solder cleanup. At the end of class, you will have completed a pair of double hoop earrings or a triple hoop pendant.

We will cover:

  • Argentium overview and how it differed from sterling silver
  • Metal gauges
  • How to measure and pre wire for fusing
  • Fusing of argentium
  • Torch use
  • Texturing wire
  • Clean-up of metal
