How to tell if your sterling silver bracelet is real

Since I have been working most of the summer selling jewelry, I usually start talking with clients and many tell me that they have bought a sterling silver bracelet that finally was not. It is a pity to see people who spend a lot on something that in a week or a month is totally peeling, curiously, I believe that at least 80% of my clients have had this bad experience, that is why I have decided to list in this post the things that should be fixed before buying a sterling silver bracelet:
1.A sterling silver bracelet cannot stick to a magnet. I know it may sound exaggerated to walk with a magnet, but I think it's more economical and more practical to walk with a magnet than to spend $ 150,000 (Chilean pesos) on a chain that was finally metal bathed in something.
2.Silver always has a degree of purity engraved on it. I imagine that many of you will have seen that some sterling silver bracelets have written 925 or 950. 925 means that it is 92.5% silver and the rest is copper, if it is silver of 950 it means that it is 95% silver and the 5% copper The last one I mentioned is the purest that can be found, since silver cannot be worked without some alloy, therefore, it is also the most suitable for extremely allergic people.
3.If you see the letter "SP" it means that it is plated in silver. I would like to add that many people say that a sterling silver bracelet gets black because of bad vibes. The reality of this is that Chilean, Spanish silver, etc., tends to darken over time, the only silver that loses neither color nor brilliance is Italian silver. Therefore, if you were sold some "Italian silver" and lost the color, it means nothing more than being swindled and selling you a lower quality silver.
Now that I write this post, I have several ideas left in the ink, which I will upload over time. I hope it will help you.

What kind of supplies should I buy to get started on making my own jewelry? I already have loads of beads at home.

You need certain basics to get started making your own jewelry such as thread cord, pliers, clasps, jump rings, ear wires and cutters. But it depends on the type/ style of jewelry that you are hoping to make as to what else you will need. Get advice from a beading shop.
