Where can a person get sterling silver for making arm bands? And, at a good price.

ST,

I would use the "links" on this site and look for those who make trade silver. Not sure if his site is on here or not, but Ward from At The Eastern Door, makes them and will work with you on what is correct for the time frame.

Here is the link to his site:

attheeasterndoor.com

Hope this helps.

YMHS,

ThomasR.

google "sheet silver" you will get hundreds of companies that sell it.

Go as thin as possible, the heavier the gauge obviously the more expensive. (Heavy is the least PC/accurate)I can make you a pair and work with you as it has been my experience especially with working in silver that if you make a mistake you have wasted your money. All silver armbands that I have seen have an edge bead of some sort and great care should be taken in executing this feature, and it's easy to mess it up. Not doubting your ability, just forewarning you. I'd hate to see someone spend $$$$ on something that ends up not matching period specs, opens one up to criticism, or simply looks wrong.
If you need help, or simply a pair made, just ask
