7 Inches Silver

April 25th, 2013 at 01:34 pm

Silver prices hit a short term low day before yesterday. I've been watching and trying to pounce on the time to restock my sterling wire. It's been at least a couple years since I bought, and much as I wish and wait, those prices are never going to return.

Though I was lucky on other occasions to obtain some silver wire from super duper close outs, or hit a good deal at the LA jewelry mart and wholesale shows, the same opportunities haven't materialized lately.

And I'm running low on it.

So I took the plunge and got 10 feet from a well known jewelry supply that gives the best everyday price everyday (all the metalsmiths use them).

See, the price is not too many times more than what I paid some years ago:



Compare the last price ~ $23 / oz with two years before. About $23 / oz !!

Maybe I should have bought more?

Well, here's what I can do with 7"!
