Sharing Sources: How do you ask?

question-marks-005I have found myself in this position more than once. While admiring someone else’s work, I find an element I’d like to try, but can’t find a similar material.

In the past I have taken a chance and just asked the artist. Occasionally, I get an answer. Because I understand many are territorial about sharing any info, I only ask after I have exhausted all of my own sources and searching capabilities.

Do you ever ask fellow jewelers for their sources?

Is there a right way to ask?

Thank you,
