I can’t believe how high the price of gold is. It just keeps climbing higher and higher. I wonder when the price will start going down again?
Did you know that I used to be a jeweller? Yeah … back in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Yep. I made gold jewelery. I worked for a company that made jewelery from scratch – from wax mold, to castings, then polishing and assembling each and every piece.
When I worked in the jewelery trade Gold reached a price of about $800 an ounce and at the time that was the highest price it had ever been, but now that gold is at about $1338 an ounce that makes the jewelery that I was making seem like discount jewelry!
Hmmm Maybe I should get back into the jewelery trade? Nah … I left it for a reason – I enjoyed the work, but I hated the atmosphere. By the early 90’s I’d opened my own business and I worked 16 or more hours a day (like I do now as webmaster!) but my clients were extremely demanding, cheap and well … rude. I don’t want to go back to that again.
