Finally after what seemed like eternity waiting for my PMC sheet silver and Kiln which were held up in customs at the Canada-US border, they arrived over the weekend and I didn’t waste a minute. I was pretty happy to get them photographed and up in the shop before Sunday was over. The first pair of fine silver earrings and necklace sold within 2 hours of posting the listing. I am still waiting on my cabochon gemstones from Thailand and a few other tools before I can begin setting stones in my work. Check out the etsy page for more.
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.
