Intro to Silver Metal Clay

Learn how to make beautiful fine silver jewelry from soft, workable “clay-like” silver. Silver metal clay is a safe, non-toxic material made of tiny silver particles embedded in an organic base. You will learn how to form, refine, fire, and finish jewelry pieces using the clay, paste, and a syringe. Make a pendant with a rollover bail and a fire-in-place stone, and gain the knowledge to continue creating beautiful jewelry at home with a few basic tools and a small hand-held butane torch. Your pieces will be fired in a kiln in class, but Sherry will teach you to torch-fire your pieces at home. Materials fee paid to instructor in class covers fine silver clay, syringe and paste, plus a dichroic glass cabochon or fire-in-place stone.
