I've stayed out of this so far, but just can't resist asking by it
is representation to call an item made of fine silver by its correct
name? Once fired, silver metal clay is pure .999 silver. If one said
it was forged or cast when it was sculpted with metal clay, that
would be misrepresentation. Calling it fine silver is simply fact.
