Fine Silver Links Bracelet

Why do I make a point of stating "fine" silver and "sterling" silver?  Fine silver is almost pure (99.9%).  Sterling silver is 92.5% silver, with added metals (mostly copper).  All silver will tarnish however sterling silver will tarnish quicker, due to the "other" content.

I like fine silver for that reason (low/slower tarnish) and mostly because it fuses easily; allowing me to shape and connect as desired.
