Earrings from Precious Metal Clay

Sat, Oct 24, 2015

A material developed in Japan in the 1990's, precious metal clay (PMC) is composed of small particles of precious metals, such as gold, silver, or brass mixed with an organic binder.  Moldable like traditional clay, precious metal clay can be crafted into a multitude of shapes and designs. Then, after firing in a kiln, the binding medium is burned away leaving you with a final product of pure gold, silver, copper, or other precious metal. Inspired by PMC, join MAD for this hands-on, afternoon-long workshop in creating wearable fineries using polymer clay and metal leafing.   Each participate will walk away with their own hand made jewelry and a small kit to continue their process at home!
