- Sort your metals. Sterling silver with sterling silver, gold with gold and by karat, and so on.
- Remove any gemstones. Rio Grande will no be able to return them if left on the metal.
- Weight your metals in Troy Ounces (ozt.). 1 ozt = 1.097 avdp oz. (Yes, you can and use the small scale at the Wink Artisans studio).
- Fill out the "Scrap Packing List" (Remember to read the Q&A)
- Pack it appropriately and ship it. I usually send it priority mail with delivery confirmation and insurance. Since I do send higher quantities, the return may be worth the insurance just in case.
- Your return is usually ready within two days.
Of course I can walk you through it once you are ready, just holler my way.
