    Default Scrap

    I am developing quite an amount of scraps of sterling silver. How do you recycle and with whom please? I donít have any rolling or melting equipment so it will need to be sent away.

    If you don't want to shop around, the quick fix is to send it to Cookson, for assay and purchase. They will send you a cheque in 2-3 weeks.
    You will need to have about a kilo to make it worthwhile, because they will charge between £40-50 for the service. Dennis.

    If you weigh out small amounts you can easily melt them on a charcoal block into 'blobs' and hammer them on a steel block to make simple earrings. I find it very therapeutic watching silver melt! Small blobs are also good for decorating pieces.
