Precious Metal Clay Jewelry Crafting Workshop
Add to your calendar
Date: May 11, 12:00 pm
Continues Until:
Location: ASCA, 111 Elk Avenue
Details: This is like no other jewelry workshop! Precious metal clay, PMC, is a crafting medium, with the consistency of polymer clay that is comprised of very small particles of metal (in this case silver). The “clay” is used to form beautiful pendants, rings, and earrings for jewelry pieces. Once the clay has been shaped to the user's liking, it is fired in a tabletop kiln. During the firing process, the binder in the PMC burns away, incredibly leaving a 99% pure silver piece. Once out of the kiln, the piece can be burnished for shine or intentionally tarnished with liver of sulfur, which is capable of creating a rainbow of metallic colors on the surface of the silver from golds, greens, blues, and violets to pure black.

No experience is necessary, and students familiar with PMC and those who are new to the medium are both encouraged to join this workshop.
