The Price of Metals

Chart provided by Kitco.
The precious metals market continues to be tumultuous. Gold closed today at 893.70 while silver closed at 17.34. Copper closed at 3.8262. Thought this isn’t as bad as it has been over the past few months, the high prices affect jewelry supplies. I went to one bead store, and they aren’t even stocking sterling silver wire because of the high price of metals.
In the Etsy forums yesterday, there was a good thread about the best outlets for sterling silver wire.
