Experimenting with PMC origami jewelry

So recently I have been interested in getting into more silver work.  After a little research I discovered PMC, or precious metal clay.  A clay based silver material bound to an organic moldable compound that when fired burns off leaving one with solid 99.9% fine silver product.  Luckily it comes in thin sheets that can be folded like origami and adorned with gem stones and texturized or stamped.

I went on a little shopping spree online and bought a bunch of PMC, gemstones, tools and an electric kiln, the easy bake oven of jewelry artists.  Now I have to sit and wait for it all to arrive from various parts of the world.  I’m so excited I thought I would share some pics of my shopping hoard, as well as a few photos of other PMC jewelry.

Cheers.
