Stering silver does not contain nickle. Tell your friends family
and anyone else you know.
We all have different experiences. I had a caster for years who
mixed his own "sterling" grain. He used Nickle. I didn't know it
until some pieces came back because of allergies and I asked him
what his alloys were. He said he used nickle because he liked the
way it held the finish. He said that's the way he was taught. This is
a small, independent guy in downtown LA. Been casting for 30 some-odd
years. Whether or not he was right or wrong, his "sterling silver"
which he stamped BTW, contained nickle. Now I always ask what the
alloys are. We learn from our mistakes.
I'm sorry you feel that people are so stupid that they deserve to be
berated or humiliated. I feel that this is a forum for learning and
sharing and experiences. If you can't post a stupid
question or make a mistake on this forum where can you? If you (or
anyone else) knows better why don't you educate instead of berate?
We are are responsible for our own actions. I feel bad if someone
follows someone's advice from the forum and looses $$$, I don't want
anyone to lose $$$. But have you been on the internet lately? There's
tons of misout there, too. You have to use your head
enough to sift through the fact, the fiction and the guess work. You
can also get misfrom books, classes and your best friend.
You learn from mistakes, and on this forum you can share those
mistakes and the successes as well. I have never taken advice from
this forum as the gospel on the "right" way to do something. You (I
mean the general you) have to realize that some of the information
can be wrong. If you don't realize that, then I think you're the
now I will duck.
