Precious Metal Clay Taster Workshop - Make your own Silver Earrings
Half-day workshops for beginners with Jenny Timms

"From start to finish - clear and methodical instruction '. - David

Precious Metal Clay (PMC) - make your own pair of silver earrings using PMC!

In this mini workshop you will learn about the fascinating world of jewellery-making with Precious Metal Clay - aka. PMC. PMC is a clay-like combination of pure silver and organic binders that, when fired, become solid silver.

The class cost includes 5 grammes of silver PMC - enough to make a pair of stunning earrings you'll love wearing!

After discussing the properties of PMC, we'll begin your earrings project. You'll learn to handle the clay, roll it out and add textures, cut out shapes and refine the finish of the clay before firing in the kiln.
With this project you'll learn about some of the clay modelling properties that make PMC so versatile.

This is a half-day practical workshop intended to give an introduction to the versatility of PMC - and give you the opportunity to make a fun set of earrings at a low cost. If you enjoy this class you're sure to find the full one-day PMC workshop fascinating.
And you'll love the jewellery you'll be able to make!

Watch Jenny introduce the full one-day PMC workshop, show examples of the projects you can make in a day, and the materials and tools you'll be using on this class. All videos hosted on YouTube.

  • On Video Two watch Jenny demonstrate how to make a simple piece of PMC Silver Jewellery.
  • On Video Three Jenny shows us the polishing and finishing stages of the piece she made earlier.
  • On Video Four Mike demonstrates torch firing - a good option for creating PMC jewellery at home!
