Is there any other way from Ag to the chloride (since I'm starting with Ag, not the nitrate).

You should be able to by use of a silver cathode in a salt(or perhaps HCl) solution. Assuming of course that the precipitated AgCl does not cling to the electrode too much.

EDIT: HCl is preferable I think, especially in an undivided cell, otherwise Ag2O may contaminate.

Great! Any substitutes for the binder? I shall try this procedure as soon as I can.

Yeah, AgCl builds up very fast on the silver, but the silver chloride sticks to the electrode stopping further reaction. If the silver electrode was flat and placed on the bottom of the beaker under a stirbar it would work. The AgCl comes off the electrode with mild scraping.

Binder is not really necessary, just salt and AgCl on some toilet paper, it probably works anyway.

Guys i found this :
http://www.google.com/patents?id=dFpyAAAAEBAJ&printsec=a...

it does look promising, however do you have an idea what sodium phosphate did they mean there?

btw. sorry for the bump, but i do believe there is some interest in it

It's entirely possible to use ceramic powder which is sintered much as clay pots are
fired in a kiln to make firearm parts which cannot be seen by a metal detector.

I happened upon this very interesting clip showing a recent development of a nano-Ag based "ink".

Silver based "ink" for electrical conductivity - in a pen.

a clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRbQvEefhXc#t=39

and the site:

and a paper:
