PMC (Precious Metal Clay) allows for multiple design options. The material is made up of fine (pure) silver and an organic binder. Depending on what I am trying to achieve, I select the formula appropriate to the design and move forward from there. Using textures, molds, sculpting tools and my bare hands I create the pieces over many hours. The pieces are fired in a kiln and shrink 10-30% depending on which clay is used. The pieces are cleaned, brushed, oxidized, polished and mounted. This is how all my wearable sculptures are created.
