Precious Metal Clay (PMC) is a versatile material that consists of silver (or copper or bronze or gold) particles embedded in an organic binder. The material is malleable, and can be shaped, textured, or carved. Once dry, the PMC is fired with a torch or in a kiln, burning off the binder and allowing the silver particles to bind together, resulting in a stunning piece of 99.9% fine silver! In this class, you’ll learn to work with PMC3 (fine silver) to create a pair of earrings and a pendant, or two pendants (your choice). We’ll cover texturing, shaping, drying, sanding, firing, burnishing, adding a patina, and polishing. You will be provided with a supply list and resources to help you pursue this fun medium further in your home. The materials fee covers the cost of 16 grams of PMC3, use of class tools, a chain and ear wires so you can wear your jewelry out the door.
