I sorted my bag of loot according to materiality, which only partially helped my decision-making process. The other big factor (excuse the pun) is size. Im planning my usual connection method and in order to do that I need a reasonable area of material as well as intrinsic strength. I like steel for that purpose, but having run a magnet over this batch of jewels, I see that I dont have much of it. Im going to have to venture into some different metals.
