19R124N-B - Intro to Precious Metal Clay
May 4, 2019
Saturday, 9am-5pm
Sherry Viktora

19R124N-B - Intro to Precious Metal Clay


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 during class, but Sherry will teach you how to torch-fire your pieces at home.

Materials fee covers
fine silver clay, syringe and paste, plus a dichroic glass cabochon or fire-in-place stone.

Level: Novice and above

Student Supply List:

Bring a cord or chain for your pendant(s).

Materials Fee $37 (payable to instructor at class time with cash or check)

Meet the Instructor: Sherry Viktora
