I think it is interesting to watch how prices effect the trends in
our field. At last check today Silver was at $10.73 and Gold $750.25.
This is half of what it was just 6 months ago, but still twice as
much as it was in 2005.
I’ve noticed much more use of bronze, brass and pewter in general.
Also other mixed media. I’m curious how the metal prices are
effecting you now. Are you using other metals and such? And how about
your pricing, how has it effected that?
As for me, I never stopped producing during the time the prices were
at their peek, I couldn’t. Now that prices are lower several of my
pieces were obviously made during this time. Hummmmmmmm will $10 to
$20 make or break the sale?
