Jerry Beeman's Profile
I really enjoy making one-of-a-kind items. Wire wrapping is my favorite discipline. Pendants, rings, rings with "Cabs" or "snapsets". With wire wrapping, there is no soldering, riveting or bolting, it's all in the way the item is wrapped. After wire wrapping,Chain mail chains are another favorite. Byzantine, Inca Puno, Jens Pind are my 3 favorite.
I use Argentium® Sterling Silver a modern sterling silver alloy which modifies the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) by replacing some of the copper with the metalloid germanium. As it retains the 92.5% silver content of the traditional alloy, it is still referred to as sterling silver. It will not turn black!
Argentium silver is the result of research by Peter Johns at the School of Art & Design, Middlesex University…
