Fine silver jewelry is yours for the making with precious metal clay and a small kitchen torch. You will be inspired by how easy it is to make striking pendants and earrings with this innovative clay – its tiny particles of fine silver fuse into solid metal when fired. 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 creme brulee) and give it a shiny finish. If you can make dessert, you can make affordable silver jewelry and adornments.
