Silver Metal Clay Earrings

Silver Metal Clay is a revolutionary new medium from Japan, which allows you to create 99.9% pure silver jewellery.   It consists of exceedingly small particles of silver mixed with an organic binder and water. The metal clay can be moulded, textured, carved, and sculpted; it is then fired with a torch or fired in a kiln to transform it into silver.

During this class you will be able to create two or three pairs of earrings depending on the size and will introduce you to the infinite possibilities of this medium.
