Storing Materials

Dear Nancy, I would like to make some suggestions about materials
storage. First put your metals in zip lock bags, keep a good range of
baggies on hand, from very small to super huge. Coil all of your
wires. If the wires are cut in 12" lengths store them flat. If you
have a lot of silver on hand buy some anti-oxidation paper strips and
place those in the baggies with the silver. Rio Grande sells the
strips. The grocery store often has a large selection of over sized
baggies. Next buy a small rolling suspended file cart from an office
supply store. File and label your metals in this rolling office file
cart and you can roll the cart where ever you need it in your studio.
