This is the introductory class to take if you’ve never taken a metal clay class or if you’ve been away from working with metal clay and would like a refresher. Explore the many ways that you can use silver in a metal clay formulation to create jewelry designs of your own. The newest way of working with silver is metal clay which can be shaped like clay to produce uniquely textured surfaces, resulting in durable beautiful silver jewelry. Students will learn metal clay working techniques and make pendants, earrings, charms, and rings. The class will also cover techniques for setting and firing stones directly in metal clay. Each student will leave with at least four finished pieces of jewelry. No previous experience necessary. Students at all levels of experience are welcome to join in the fun of using the newest method of working with pure silver.
