Precious Metal Clay, or PMC, is soft and pliable and can be shaped and formed with your fingers and simple tools, many of which you probably all ready have on hand.
After air-drying, the objects – pendants, earrings etc – are heated to temperatures approaching the melting point of the metal where the metal particles fuse together and the clay-like binder burns off to make a dense, fully metallic object – Precious Metal. Fired PMC work can be polished with a burnisher or in a tumbler, soldered, enameled, and in many other ways treated just like any other silver item.
This method of jewelry-making uses fine silver which is a more expensive material and so these pieces are priced by weight (grams).
These delicate earrings feature sterling silver toward the top, with light green sea glass from St. Croix, Virgin Islands.
Sea glass is physically and chemically weathered glass found on beaches along bodies of salt water. These weathering processes produce natural frosted glass. “Genuine sea glass” can be collected as a hobby and can be used to make jewelry. Sea glass takes 20 to 30 years, and sometimes as much as 50 years, to acquire its characteristic texture and shape. (excerpt from Wikipedia)
