Gratitude is a State

Handled a tricky design problem yesterday. Looking back, it turns out that it was really easy and just staying with it was what it took to get it done. Today I want to say out loud how much gratitude I am feeling. Yes, I have a list.

Go Silver Go!

Hi All-
Since the Federal Reserve doods stuck to their plan today (click the TITLE link to read an article if you want) .... things will remain the same for another go-round. I was braced for a big correction in the Silver price (drop) if they raised interest rates... but they didn't... so silver is gonna keep going up. Since I predicted $50 by the end of 2011 and it will probably get there by Friday (or maybe even by market close today)... I will have to think about it and give you a new updated prediction.
Too bad I am not running a hedge fund.... I would've made a bunch-o-loot!!
The good news is the Silver Jewelry you are making is worth more, so don't be afraid to price it correctly. If somebody think your price is too high ask them to step aside, there will be somebody else right behind them. Stress quality in your work and you will survive when others drop out.
Don't give up, Art is more important than money.

Another New High

Hi All-
You probably know this already but in case you don't ,
Silver Spot price hit $40.00 today
Wow, I don't know what to say .... and I am gaining confidence about my predictions .... see my past posts. So, if this continues, it is possible that Silver will be $50 by the end of 2011 (or even $100) depending on some other market factors and world events. Check back.

Silver hits new Spot high today!

SILVER HIT $36.00 TODAY!! It is going to go to $50 by the end of 2011, possibly even $100 if some other factors kick in. The only thing holding it back is the fact that it is being manipulated in order to encourage investors towards other paper investments, which are the equivalent of air.

I'm loving this, my collection has doubled in value.
Not sure how this is affecting PMC artists. PMC is already twice as expensive as spot silver. How is everyone doing with sales? Are you being able to realize the markup you need?
I would love to hear your strategies and what you are doing to keep being able to produce Jewelry.
Don't give up! People will always want to adorn themselves, and that is where we come in.
There will always be a market for jewelry. Good luck fellow artists!
