    Lovely! I adore your wire work! ( Argentium Silver is amazing, isn’t it? I have some 30 gauge that I use for fine wrapping and such.)

    Thanks, ladies! I like the springy argentium, although it can be hard on the fingers after a few hours of wrapping! I think I will always use it for earwires.

    Hi, Peggy! I like argentium because I make my own balled earwires. After I torch them, all I need to do is polish in the tumbler No need for the pickle pot. Here is a link (not sure if it is allowed! lol! it is from Rio Grande!) for working with Argentium. For me, the price difference is offset but the quality of the product. http://www.riogrande.com/Conte.....-pdf?Pos=0
