Hi Christine, thanks for the reply concerning a recycled metal mixture. I am on your mailing list for your newsletter and look forward to your article. I have not checked Rio yet for their mixture, but presently purchase my silver and gold from Hoover & Strong. I am also looking forward to the upcoming availability of fairtrade gold.
I have been interested in your work for a while now. I'm stupidly organic...sounds like you are too. Have been meaning to sign up for your newsletter. Must do that soon!
Enjoy seeing your designs.
