Sterling Filled Items Are Now In!

As you may know, the price of sterling has increased dramatically over the past several months. In response, our metal supplier is now carrying sterling filled items.

Much like gold filled, this is still technically a plating. However, because of the thickness of the metal, and because of the process in which it was made, the silver should not wear off like a normal base-metal plating would. This is a cost effective alternative for those of us who love the look of silver, yet do not want to pay for the silver prices.

This first shipment has round wire and smooth, round beads in it. More will be coming soon.

Try it and let us know what you think!
