Skill level: Novice
In this 2-day workshop you will get several hands-on, step-by-step demonstrations on how to create with PMC silver—in lump, sheet and paste form.
Learn how easy this material can be manipulated by rolling, molding, carving, and texturing. Once fired, it can be oxidized and polished just like traditional metalsmithing. Explore this fantastic medium while making pendants, earrings, and hollow beads. Participants will be encouraged while exploring these techniques to find their own voice and style and have whole lot of fun doing it.
PMC is a unique jewelry making material. This user-friendly product is a malleable substance that is composed of fine silver particles in an organic binder. It can be sculpted and manipulated like potter’s clay. After firing in a kiln, the end result is your unique design created in fine silver (.999).
