Dear Orchidians, Has anyone out there increased their use of
gold in the past year or so – perhaps making a move from working
exclusively in silver or other materials to working with gold?
I’m working on an article on gold prices for Lapidary Journal,
and I was wondering if the price of gold influenced your
decision. Was your decision motivated by lower gold prices, or
did you not even think about price until you’d placed your gold
order? If you’ve been working in gold for a little while, have
you noticed a cost difference in your gold purchases?
I look forward to hearing from anybody with thoughts on how the
price of gold affects the studio jeweler. I can be reached via
e-mail at SuWade@ici.net or via phone at 508-339-7366.
