I create my jewelry with the finest materials, but also with an eye on affordability. One of my favorite materials to work in is Precious Metal Clay. It is a "clay-like" material made of water, a non-toxic binder and pure silver (gold, bronze or copper) particles. The clay can be shaped, textured, molded and manipulated like any traditional clay. When fired, the binder burns off, leaving an heirloom quality, 99.9% silver (gold, bronze or copper) treasure. The silver particles are captured from reprocessed film, therefore, recycled.
