These are super aluminium connector bars for hand stamping on. They are 45mm long x 15mm wide & are cut from 16 gauge aluminium, with a 2mm hole punched at each end.
Being 16 gauge they are lovely & soft to stamp on, but yet feel substantial being 1.2mm thick.
These are unfinished blanks cut on a laser machine to my own unique design. They have a small nobble where the laser starts & stops cutting, but a couple of rubs in one direction on a fine file or emery sheet will smooth that off. They polish up to an amazing mirror shine.
Aluminium is great for jewellery making as it is hypo allergenic, lightweight & polishes up beautifully to look much like sterling silver without the cost, plus it doesn't tarnish.
