I want to start talking about one of my favorite material, SILVER!!!! For me is not as “serious” as gold so it lets designers be more playful and more creative, I think.
Silver has been around us for a long time. Did you know? The first mine of silver was found in Turkey between 4,000 and 3,00 B.C
Probably the most important role of this metal was in the creation of United States currency, in fact, Congress used silver to create the U.S. monetary system in the late 1700s. (www.metallixrefining.com)
Right now the countries that produce the most amount of silver are Mexico and Peru, United States is positioned in 9th. Place.
And here is a taste of the amazing things you can find in silver …
