So, do you think gold is on the way back in or what? I have been seeing some gold where before I saw only gemstones and silver. Hmm. Gold is sooo expensive, even at wholesale cost-then you have to mark it up for retail and, believe me, where I live there is a limited market as to who will buy the end product at retail. The problem is, I don't like to deal in faux. Wooden beads, crystal and glass are ok as they are "honest" but I don't particularly want to use gold plate. Maybe just throw in some sterling with brass?
