Sterling Silver Clay Cuffs and Split Rings
January 31 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The strength of sterling silver is now part of the Metal Clay family. One of the inherent assets of sterling silver clay as compared to fine silver clay is its post firing strength. Therefore, it is the perfect choice for jewelry that requires forming and shaping after firing: such as cuff braceletsand split rings.
In this class students will learn how to:
- size cuffs and rings to account for the shrinkage of the clay
- shape and texture each project
- proper firing schedule
- forging and shaping pieces after firing
- a second firing to add stones and decorative elements to shaped bracelet and ring
Prior Metal Clay experience is required.
