candle making - the basics to advanced techniques

What do you do in your free time? Do you sit in your recliner watching reruns of shows from the 80's munching on microwave popcorn? This was exactly how I spent my free time for many years. About a year ago, I went to a craft fair and found some of the most uniquely beautiful candles that I have seen in my life. When I went home, I started looking up how to make those candles and that was when I changed what I do with my free time. This blog is all about making candles. You will learn everything from the basics to the most advanced candle making techniques to try.

Avoiding The Pitfalls Of Silver Investing

Silver is intended to be a long-term investment. If you are patient, your silver investment will pay off and will protect you from market volatility. But to make the most out of your silver investment, you will need to know how to make wise decisions when purchasing silver.

Understand How A Hedge Works

A hedge is the act of using an investment to protect yourself when the market moves against you. Silver tends to increase in value during a recession, so it is one of the few investments that can protect you in the event of an economic downturn.

Inform Yourself On The Newest Investment Options

If you invested in silver many years ago and were disappointed that your only options were to invest in gold and silver, there are fortunately many more options available today, such as purchasing securities that are backed by silver.

Know The Process Of Selling Silver Jewelry

You might have owned a piece of jewelry that was challenging for you to sell. However, selling jewelry is not the same as selling silver coins or bars, since silver coins and bars have a more standardized value. It is also easier to own silver coins and bars. To sell silver, you can simply place an order with your broker.

Consider Not Investing In Silver Jewelry

Silver jewelry is one of the worst ways to invest in silver because the jewelry has a markup as a result of craftsmanship and the alloy content. You will not be compensated as much for silver jewelry as what you originally paid, especially if the silver is melted down. The only exception is if you have a piece with a unique design that is in high-demand.

Invest In Bullion Over Rare Silver Coins

If you are a first-time investor in silver, you should invest in silver bullion rather than investing in rare silver coins. To effectively invest in silver coins, you must understand the rarity value of the coin, which is constantly changing and difficult to understand.

Buy From One Supplier

It is better to purchase silver from one location than it is to purchase silver from one locations. If you purchase silver from a single location, you will be able to avoid the markup that can result from multiple quotes. Also, if you purchase more silver at once, you will likely pay a lower price because you are buying in bulk. Once you find the right supplier, you will be able to grow you wealth with the help of your silver investments.

Once you build up a good collection, find gold and silver buyers that will offer you a good price for your treasures.
