With silver prices rocketing sky high, I'm giving a great deal of thought to my future in jewelry making and teaching. One FaceBook friend said she had it on good authority (a friend of hers) that silver could reach $75.00 before we know it!
Jewelry makers are going to have to become very clever, either at marketing silver as the new gold (and think how inexpensive we'd think gold was at $75) or finding new materials to work with.
Here's hoping the world regains it's sanity in 2011.
