It’s not magic, but it sure looks it! Imagine a lump of clay, rolling it and cutting it out like dough, printing it with nearly any type of texture you can imagine, and then having it fired in a kiln. But instead of clay, what comes out of the kiln is PURE SILVER! Precious Metal Clay is pure powdered silver mixed with plant fibre and water. Once in the kiln, the plant fibre burns away and only the pure silver is left behind. Depending on the size of each work, participants will be able to make between 5 to 10 pieces of beautifully crafted, gift-worthy jewellery in their very first class.
Kit Fee includes the cost of 45 grams PMC+ brand pure silver, a sterling chain and a pair of sterling ear wires. More PMC+ will be available in class for an additional cost.
