Let me recycle…

I place silver scraps in a ceramic tray and heat up the scraps by a big gas torch (30-40 mins) and then melt them all down.¬†Very hot indeed (Silver’s melting point is over 897 C). After cooling down, I use a rolling mill to make the material thinner! A chunk of silver needs to be rolled over 20 times from 20mm to 1.5mm. My arms and back were aching, but hey, recycle for love! These were used for ‘Recycled (one-off pieces) range, here.
