About the Clay
Silver Clay is a fabulous medium for making jewellery – from the simplest shapes to the most organic and intricate patterns.
It’s a bit like using Fimo but with a time limit.
Silver Clay is part of the metal clay family, and like the name suggests, it is a soft material that can be shaped just like potter’s clay. Composed of silver particles, organic binders and water, silver clay – when fired – is fine silver and can be hallmarked as fine silver (99.9%).
Great for all skill levels, silver clay is instant gratification for jewellers and hobbyists, requiring almost no equipment or jewellery making experience.
Below is a gallery that will give you some idea of what can be created with silver clay.
With Silver Clay you can:
- roll it
- knead it
- beat it
- stretch it
- texture it
- fold it
- pretty much anything else you can think of
That’s a lot of freedom!
Creating free-form jewellery with lots of texture is one of the great benefits of silver clay. It is capable of holding good detail and is excellent for taking moulds of a wide variety of shapes. You can use buttons, leaves, texture plates and more to get the finish you want. It’s a rewarding experience to watch your piece materialise before your eyes, and you then get to wear it home as a finished piece of fine silver jewellery.
