Sterling silvers


#1

Greetings all,

I am doing my Honours year at the Australian National University,
Canberra School of Art researching new sterling silver alloys
currently on the market. I would like to ask those of you working in
silver for a boon: could you take a moment to answer the questions
below:

  1. Do you use a new Sterling alloy or the traditional silver/copper?

1b) which of the new sterlings are you using?

1c) What is the manufacturing style (as in casting, raising,
fabricating)?

  1. If you work in sterling silver and use the traditional
    silver/copper alloy, Have you tried any of the new alloys?

2b) Why do you not use a new alloy?

Answers will not be published except as a summary.

Thank you
Eileen
