Computer service has been cranky
so I've been concentrating on production
for a home show tomorrow night.
Back in the dark ages
when I first started making jewelry
sterling silver was ridiculously cheap.
You could buy it easily and
it's wonderful to work with.
It was probably about 5.00/troy ounce...
todays price is 32.97/troy ounce!
I don't buy it much anymore
so I splurged on a bit for the party
and it is like a guilty pleasure!
- it is definately my first love.
eflective, malliable and buffs to a
high shine or takes an awesome patina
it is such a joy to work with.
Copper is still affordable
and very similar to sterling
in malleability, shine and patina uptake.
I may work a few pieces in today.
Hope everyone is well..
and what is your favorite metal?
