Explore jewelry making using precious metal clay (PMC). PMC is clay made of metal particles, which may be sculpted to create pieces that become solid, fine silver when fired. Each student will create a pair of small earrings and a charm or a bead. Students will learn how to texture the clay, fire, patina and polish. All skill levels welcome.
