Those bags of silver scrap from the studio clean up 2 weeks ago?     $990 worth of credit at Rio Grande.

I just spent it all on an order of fresh PMC, fine silver wire, Argentium sterling wire, fine silver and Argentium tubing,  a case of earring size jewelry boxes, a tiny anvil and a brass hammer, some heavier black 49 strand beadalon, polishing pads, a rubber block, a cone doming plate, and some spiral wax cutting saw blades to use on the Faux Bone™ I am itching to try. Fine silver pendants with riveted Faux Bone insets are calling to me, “Try something new! You’ll like it!”

  1. HOLY MOLY!!!!! that is a LOT of scrap!
    i can’t wait to see your riveted faux bone! do you think you can fire argentium with pmc, if it’s not supposed to tarnish? that’s been on my mind, lately…..

      Hi Holly,
      A lot of scrap and a lot of crap!
      I don’t think you can fire Argentium w/ PMC. Unless you depletion gild the surface first, so that you have fine silver on the surface. Argentium is still sterling.
      You’ll be waiting a while for the faux bone and rivets! But I’ll get there.

    Very cool!


  3. Wow! That’s awesome. You’ve inspired me to round up all my bits and pieces and turn them into something a bit more useful!

      Hey Jackie,
      Round up that scrap. You won’t be sorry! I did check your Etsy site. Nice! I have more to add to mine, but slow with the photos.
