Silver Clay: Embedding Gemstones
2 part Mini Course
A two part introduction to making fine silver jewellery using magical silver clay and fireable gemstones. In these two sessions you will learn how to create a piece of jewellery using silver clay and how to embed fireable gemstones for added bling.
Toni, who has recently completed her PMC Certification, will be on hand to offer advice about finessing your pieces and firing. Once fired you will have a piece of fine, Hallmarkable silver. Findings will be supplied to complete one of your pieces to wear home.
Firing gemstones safely requires a slow programme in the kiln, so whilst your work is firing Toni will give you some extra tips on how to make the most of your silver clay- such as extra polishing advice and how to reconstitute your clay.
From 10g clay you can expect to make 1-3 pieces depending on size.

We can organise firing of your Silver Clay creations, for a small fee, if you live in the local area and would be able to deliver your work to Hasketon, Suffolk. We have a 'no-contact' delivery and collection box available on site. (Please note: due to the current lockdown and restrictions in place, this service may take longer than usual)
Otherwise, you will need a kiln, blowtorch or gas hob to be able to fire the Silver Clay yourself.
