The price of silver

Like everything else these days, the price of silver is on the up. I hadn't realised how much it had risen until I had a look at this graph courtesy of www.cooksongold.com

I started making silver jewellery in about 2000, and you can see from this chart that the price of silver has trebled since 2003. I am no economist, but a Google search will give you lots more reasons on why this is happening and why many investors are turning to gold and silver in these rocky times.

I won't be stockpiling just yet, but what I love about working with silver is that every scrap can be recycled into something new.
