Building upon your previous experience with metal clay, you'll work with a highly concentrated form of silver clay. In the first session, create a personalized rubber stamp for an impression. The stamp can be based either on a design idea brought to class (approximately one-inch square) or inspired by samples provided by the instructor. Design jewelry piece(s) based on the fabricated stamp; then form one or more components. Explore attachment options for finishing before firing the silver clay. In the second session, you'll learn various ways of coloring the surface, beyond oxidation. Optionally, try your hand at wire-wrapped findings. The class fee includes sufficient silver clay to make at least one pendant, earring set, or several bracelet charms. You'll walk away from this class with your own unique pieces of wearable art. Prerequisite: LLCFT 241 Bronze Clay Jewelry or equivalent experience.
