Intro to Precious Metal Clay

May 1, 2020

Schedule: Friday, 9am-5pm

Instructor: Sherry Viktora

Registration Deadline: April 20

Description

Learn how to make beautiful fine silver jewelry from soft, workable “clay-like” silver. Precious metal clay is a safe, non-toxic material made of tiny silver particles embedded in an organic clay/water base. In this one-day class you will learn all about PMC – how to form, refine, fire, and finish jewelry pieces using the clay, paste, and a syringe. You will make a pendant with a rollover bail and either a stone or dichroic glass cabochon and gain the knowledge to continue creating beautiful jewelry at home with just 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 how 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.
