For no other reason that I am hugely annoyed, I post this picture of a chain I bought at what I thought was a 'too good to be true' price for sterling silver.
Actually, I bought two dozen.
At first I noticed that they had a different shine and texture to them than sterling silver and when one began to turn a tarnish-y color far too soon to be right, I did this.
I snipped off one end and hit it with the torch. Sterling silver would ball up, well, silver. This one barely melted and balled up brass.
Bad karma, seller. Baaaaaaad karma.
My own karmic conscience prevents me from naming her/him.
I'm too nice because this is really crappy business.
What is wrong with people?
