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 silver jewelry in traditional silversmith methods.
