In its simplest form, silver smithing involves the making of artistic forms and the settings for stones from silver wire or sheet. Silver alloy (e.g. stirling) may also be cast, using forms made from various substances. For soldering the bezels, bases and rings that make up a setting, alloys are available with different melting points to enable the assembly of several parts. Silver is quite soft, and may be shaped by filing, hammering and bending with the appropriate tools.
