CR Hill has an excellent assortment of high quality metals and equipment for both professional and amateur jewelry makers. The store is a little intimidating at first, but the staff is extremely helpful. They carry all sorts of materials and tools for metal jewelry making, as well as books and an assortment of beads, findings, and semi-precious stones. Their prices are very reasonable and you can get all different sizes of silver and other metals in small or large quanities. Highly recommended.
