Beginning Jewelry Techniques with Silver Metal Clay

Instructor: Cynthia A. Quesenberry

Class:  Saturday, July 17, 2021, 10am - 4pm

This introductory class is an adventure in working with precious metal clay.  Art Clay Silver is a great product especially formulated for objects that can be created and fired in the same day with outstanding results.  Art Clay Silver is pure fine silver (.999) mixed with water and an organic binder.  It is soft and easy to work with simple tools.  Once it is fired at 1550 degrees for 45 minutes the product is .999 fine silver.  Art Clay silver is available in several formulations such as syringes, paste, silver coated paper, and overlay paste. Art Clay Silver projects can be combined with ceramics, glass fusions, kiln fired enameled, and torch enameled.  The creative possibilities are endless.  Art clay copper is also available.  The beginner techniques covered in this class include how to manipulate the clay, techniques to make attachments, using a variety of textures and molds, finishing, sanding techniques, and how to make simple repairs.  We will create a variety of silver jewelry and/or other decorative objects for functional use in other projects.

Materials include silver clay, use of all tools and equipment, and student’s choice of silver jewelry findings to make completed wearable jewelry projects.  Extra silver clay is available for purchase.
