Reclaiming silver in the workshop With the cost of silver increasing at quite a speed it seemed like a good time to reclaim all of the scrap silver in the workshop. In went all of our mistakes, the rings with the wrong size stone settings, the designs that didn’t work and naturally all the off cuts and left over pieces. It is quite surprising how much you can reclaim but of course you have to be careful what you use – too many impurities and it will fail when it goes eventually to be hallmarked. After an hour or so we finished up with 163 grams of sterling silver ready to find its way through the rolling mill. Soon it will all hopefully find its way into our 2016 collection.
