Description

Precious metal clay has taken the jewellery world by storm! It is a fantastic material to work with as it has the versatility of clay and once fired it turns into 99.9% silver. We will look at designs you can create, either earrings or a pendant, then show you how to make a moulding compound which will be used to cast your chosen object or texture. The PMC is then pressed into the mould, fired with a torch and polished using a rotary polisher. Liver of sulphur may then be applied to enhance the texture/design. The pieces will then be finished - by forging silver ear wires and piercing the final piece to create earrings or creating a hanging bail for a pendant. You will be amazed at the results you will achieve!

In-person course

All together, I would highly recommend this course. It is suitable for complete novices as well as those with some experience. Rosemary's teaching was informative and well structured; it didn't overwhelm or intimidate but was very helpful. I liked the way techniques were explained in stages, with opportunities to try new skills. The work areas were also spacious and thoughtfully organised for each person.
The whole atmosphere was welcoming and friendly and everyone came away with a finished product that they were pleased with.
The refreshments were also a nice touch!
I would highly recommend this course.
