Metal Clay

Metal Clay

Precious metal clays all consist of the same components; tiny particles of precious metal held together with water and a special binding ingredient to form a piece of clay. The clays can be mouldedrolled, shaped, sculpted  and carved in exactly the same way as ceramic clay. The difference is, when the water has evaporated from the clay and it is fired at the right temperature for the right length of time, the particles melt together to form a piece of solid precious metal. This makes metal clays an exciting new medium for jewellery making. You can create your own designs with much greater ease than using sheet metal and all of this can be done from the comfort of your kitchen table or work bench using just a few simple tools.
