Silver Clay Jewelry
Even if you have never created jewelry before, you will be amazed by how easy it is to make pendants and earrings with Precious Metal Clay. Precious Metal Clay, or silver clay, is made of pure silver mixed with water and an organic binding agent. You can mold it into an endless number of shapes and designs. When fired, the binding agent burns off, resulting in original fine silver jewelry—99.5% pure. Participants will build their pieces from start to finish using our techniques for simple and quick firing, texturing, polishing, and finishing. The price includes the cost of 25g of PMC3 silver clay. Optional jewelry making supplies are available for purchase during the workshop.
