I've been considering working with a new medium the last few months and I finally got the nerve to just do it! Its called Precious Metal Clay. It is reclaimed silver mixed with a binder that when fired either in a kiln or by a torch becomes .999 pure silver. I Love It! I've made 4 pendants, one of which has become mine through trial and error. Err ehh humm.... Anyway, its a little harder to work with than just forging out metal since it is in clay form until you fire it.
I'm very proud of my 3 pendants that survived my forming, sanding and filing. Not to mention I'm glad they didnt have a melt down!
Here is a quick peek as to what they look like. Sorry, taken from my phone :(
I have a few more ideas and hope to make a couple more creations in the next few weeks!
