Orangina Silver Filled Bracelet





MATERIALS:


1/10 Silver-Filled Round Wire

NATURAL ORANGE STONE


The thickness of the sterling silver overlay on this wire constitutes a full 1/10th of its overall weight (twice the content of 1/20 silver-filled wire of the same gauge). This thicker silver layer lets you work deeper, polish more—even do light engraving—without exposing the brass underneath.
The sterling is bonded to a brass core (CDA #220; 90% copper/10% zinc). Because of the difference in color between the brass substrate and the silver exterior, this material also offers some design possibilities when treated as a bi-metal.
