FAQ: Do you recycle your metal?

The answer is yes, absolutely! I save all my sterling silver, gold-fill and karat gold scrap from my work on Peggy Li Creations. Save them separately and keep them clean (no other scrap). Companies like Rio Grande will process your scrap and credit you (or give you cash) cost of scrap minus their processing fees and can take small amounts of recycling material.

This is a great way to save money in your workshop. Especially since the price for sterling silver has only increased over the past few years. Every bit counts!
