PMC (Precious Metal Clay) Introduction to Silver Clay Jewelry Design
Make durable jewelry in fine (.999) silver - from start to finish - in this one-day introductory class.  Silver metal clay* is a great medium for those who want to make jewelry without investing in expensive bench tools and chemicals.

With 16g of metal clay, you will make one sterling silver pendant (16" chain included) one pair of sterling silver earrings (findings included) and one sterling silver charm.

You'll learn stamping and texturing, cutting, edge finishing, forming and shaping, embedding fine silver wire, carving and finishing and polishing and various luster's from satin to mirror finishes.
Work with a torch and learn the timing chart for firing.   

Take this class and you may in the future use our kiln for more projects you do at home or in our classes.

Materials included in the class are as follows:   silver clay (16g of PMC3), a bit of fine silver wire (for embedding), the use of classroom silver clay paste and syringe, class room tools and torch.
You will also take home a metal clay tool kit and handouts for future use.
Class fee: $175.00
