Pure Silver Jewellery - Precious Metal Clay
This workshop is an introduction to PMC - PURE SILVER so we will be making two to three pieces of jewellery, flat items like pendants, earrings, tags only. Not rings as you need to have had some experience with silver clay for this task.
Metal clay is worked in a wet and dry state and cut, textured, moulded, sculpted or carved in a method similar to ceramics. Once dry and refined it is fired at a high temperature in a kiln. The binders burn off and leave pure silver, a process described as sintering. The texture and shape of the original design are preserved intact.
It's nice to know that PMC is made with sustainable/recycled materials.
