Silver prices have retreated a bit from the record $49.50 high of a month ago, settling down to the mid 30s range - $38.50 today. I have decided to open my Etsy supplies shop Cath's Destash Shop with slightly reduced prices on the sterling silver beads. The beads are selling at BELOW silver price and/or below wholesale cost. Just trying to give everyone who still wants to use sterling silver beads a break. Also, I am now shipping to the U.K. and Belgium. Enjoy!
