Continuing Education Course

Introduction to Precious Metal Clay


Ancient jewelry making techniques converge with new millennium technology through Precious Metal Clay. Fine silver particles suspended in an organic binder and water form a wonderfully malleable material that can be formed like earthen clay and when fired in a kiln, fuses or "sinters" together to become a .999, pure silver object. In this intensive workshop students begin to master PMC as they learn how to texture, set gems, roll coils, form custom bails, re-hydrate dry material, and safely use a butane torch to fire creations made at home. Students create an original pair of earring drops and pendant. Course covers various finishing methods including wire brushing, burnishing, and patinas.

Prerequisite: None

First class materials: Approximately $65 materials fee payable to instructor at class meeting; includes one package of PMC and a faceted lab grown gemstone, syringe, paste, and paper clay will also be available for use and a loaner tool kit is provided. Additional supplies may be purchased as desired.

Bring sack lunch, water, and eye magnification.
