Torch-Fired Precious Metal Clay
Create one-of-a-kind jewelry thatís uniquely you! Use stunning precious metal clay to make affordable silver pendants, earrings, buttons and more!

Suddenly, it’s simple to make heirloom jewelry that you and your loved ones will cherish forever. Precious metal clay and a small kitchen torch will open the door to endless creative possibilities. You’ll enjoy how easy and affordable it is to create striking pendants, earrings and more with innovative clay that fuses into solid metal when fired. Jewelry designer and certified instructor Jenny Vestal 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 crème brûlée) to provide a polished finished product. If you can make dessert, you can make stylish silver jewelry and adornments as well!

"Jenny's class is wonderful for the beginner, like me, who has never used PMC before. Lots of good information on tools and techniques. I decided to watch all the videos first before even starting and I now have a much better idea where the pitfalls and intricacies are concerning the clay itself, how to mold, and how to repair mistakes. I am more of a pendant creator and enamelist so I was glad to know that I can enamel my pieces afterward if I want. I am eager to get started creating pieces and am glad that I can always watch the videos again and ask as many questions as I need to."
