Grey Clouds & Silver Linings
I make and teach about silver jewellery using an amazing medium called silver clay. Silver clay is made from reclaimed silver mixed with an organic binder and water. It can be formed and textured into jewellery which is then fired so the binder burns away leaving pure fine silver. All this can be done at your kitchen table fired on a gas hob. You are left with 99.9% silver which can be hallmarked.
