Even if you have never created jewelry before, you will be inspired by how easy it is to make striking pendants and earrings with precious metal clay. This innovative material consists of tiny particles of fine silver that fuse into solid metal when fired.
Jenny Vestal of JennyButtons will show you how to shape and texture the clay, then fire it with a small butane torch (such as you would use to make creme brulee) and give it a shiny finish.
If you are a knitter or sewer, you can accessorize your creations with custom buttons, toggles and pins for a truly polished look.
