Historical Lecture Series: Made in the Happy Valley – Jewelry Design with Precious Metal Clay

    Improve listing Presented by

Metal clay is a unique material that is used in cutting edge jewelry making.  Microfine particles of various metals including silver, gold, copper, bronze, and steel, are mixed with a binder and water to form a clay-like material.  After forming the jewelry pieces they are dried and fired in a kiln to burn away the binder leaving hardened metal.  Presenter Bevlynn Gallant was a fabrication jeweler who currently teaches this new process.  She will demonstrate the process using fine silver and show how it differs from the traditional silversmithing techniques. $7 general/ $5 members
