I choose Argentium Silver because it is resistant to tarnish, it’s hypoallergenic, and is made with reclaimed silver. I forged this one like the folded leaf earrings but struck it along the entire width to avoid curving the metal. There is a shiny surface on one side, and a very textured surface on the other. A rivet bail will hold a chain or cord. I do not include chains with pendants. Many people swap chains, and you shouldn’t have to buy one to order a pendant. If you’re interested in Argentium chains, Rio Grande does offer them. The pendant is 0.95” (24.5 mm) wide and 1.5” (31 mm) long; it weighs 6.3 grams. For an item like this, I take new photos for each piece. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you will receive if you order. When I first made one of these, I didn’t intend it to be reversible. When finished, the ‘back’ looked as good as the ‘front’ to me, so it simply became a two-fronted piece. The following description of Argentium Silver is courtesy of Rio Grande: Made with a touch of germanium, Argentium® Silver presents a bright white color that is closer to fine silver than traditional sterling, yet is highly resistant to firescale and less likely to tarnish under most conditions. It welds flawlessly and is ideal for fusing techniques. All Argentium is made from reclaimed silver and its sources are guaranteed by Argentium International Ltd. Your customers will appreciate the value and convenience of brighter-white sterling silver designs that resist tarnishing and keep on shining.
