Silver metal clay is like magic! It starts in clay form and then fires to pure fine silver. Shape and texture it with simple tools to make genuine solid silver jewelry without solder, saws or toxic chemicals. After firing with a butane torch or kiln, the clay binders burn away and the silver molecules fuse together, resulting in .999 pure fine silver jewelry!  You can even add gemstones for extra bling.

In this class you will make two personalized pieces while learning the essentials of working with metal clay. You’ll find out about the different types of metal clay and their uses, how to texture, embellish, mold and manipulate the clay, and how to set gemstones. You’ll also learn techniques such as sanding, torch and kiln firing and finishing. You’ll leave with finished jewelry plus the necessary skills for your future creative explorations with metal clay! No prior metal clay or jewelry making experience is required. Use of all tools, equipment and incidentals are included.

The required Materials Kit ($60) includes silver clay, the use of silver syringe, cubic zirconia gemstones, and findings.

Pieces will be created, fired and finished in class.
