Argentium is not a good alloy for casting, but United Precious Metals has developed some other sterling alloys that also contain  germanium so are also tarnish resistant  like argentium but cast and work more like sterling.

I just had a look at the Rio Grande website because I saw that there was a 5 star review of the Argentium 935 Sterling Casting Grains.

Check it out.   http://www.riogrande.com/Product/Argentium-935-Silver-Casting-Grain/103635?Pos=14#BVRRWidgetID

Maybe, like working with Argentium 935 generally, you just have to work with it a bit to realize the differences from regular 925 Sterling.
Haven't tried it yet, but I'm prepared to 'give it a go' one day when I get through all the other things I'm trying to teach myself about these hobbies.
