The price of gold and how it affects us...

I wasn't sure how to deal with the price of gold creeping up higher and higher... And for in the past 12 months, or maybe it's been the past 6 or 8 months, I've ignored the price of gold increase.  It's gone up and down, making the price of silver and 14k gold-filled go up and down too.  So, I've waited for things to settle.

The reason I'm writing this post is not to scare any of you lovely and awesome Throwing Stars Jewelry fans away.  I'm just trying to explain why my prices have needed to be increased.  And some things needed to go up drastically. 

Inflation is typically 2 to 3 percent a year??  Something that I think we all just learn to deal with, right?  However, the price of gold has gone up more than 100 percent!!  This time last year, the silver and the 14k gold-filled I was purchasing was half the price it is today.  Half!!  Just in the past couple of weeks, the price has gone up $5! 

The great news is that I've been busier than ever!  I've been getting tons of orders!  Everyone has told me how great my jewelry sells and how they get tons of compliments!!  I thrive off of it!

 In other news, we had an awesome photo shoot the other day!  Check out some of the fun photos that need to be filtered onto my website!
