Why it pays to save your Silver scraps!

Last TAFE lesson I melted down some of my sterling silver scraps. The years of collecting excess headpin and wire offcuts and other silver scraps has paid off. I ended up with a rather hefty ingot of sterling weighing 102 grams (just over 3.2 troy oz). I've more scraps to take in next term too. Here's a pic taken after a few turns through the rolling machine.

It's got a way to go yet before I can use it - lots of annealing and rolling to do!
