A Small Fortune!

As readers of my blog, you usually see my little creations after the design process is complete. While I am making a piece of sterling silver jewelry, there is always some waste....clippings, and trimming of wire, and yes, the occasional mistake which also results in waste. After almost 4 years of making  jewelry, I have amassed a large amount of scrap sterling silver wire. So, with silver prices at an all time high... I think that now would be a good time  time to sell it!

I think I may be sitting on a small fortune!

So, all I have to do now is figure out the best place to sell it to.

So far I have only checked out Rio Grandes' scrap metal program, but if any of you jewelry designers out there,  know of other places that buy sterling silver wire scrap, please let me know. I will be busy investigating online over the next few days. Pin It

That's quite a pile of silver! Hope you get lots for it so you can buy lots more!

Good luck in finding somewhere to sell your silver! And to get a good price! :)

Hope you are getting nice weather!

WOW! You weren't kidding when you said you were sitting on a small fortune. Isn't it cool though to pile your scrap...sort of an homage to all of the work you've done! I might start doing this with yarn clippings just to see what kind of pile it would make. Mr. M would love that sitting around, huh?

Yea! Look at all the $$$. I recently sent mine back to Rio and had a credit to my account in like 3 days. No lie...super fast! I'd go with either Rio or Thunderbird Supply. You should have a nice little payday!
