Precious Metal Clay (PMC) is an exciting medium invented by a scientist in Japan, working for the Mitsubishi Corporation, during the early 1990’s. It has grown in popularity since it provides an opportunity for creative expression for those people who might otherwise not be able to design real silver (and other precious metal) jewelry with traditional silversmith methods.
In these workshops, you will be learning to work with this material, referred to as "clay." After you design your jewelry, it is fired in a kiln and the binders in the "clay" burn away leaving you with pure, precious metal jewelry! So this is NOT pottery jewelry with a metallic finish--it is pure bronze, silver or copper jewelry!
