Yes, This is Really Made From Clay!
Silver Jewelry Made Simple 
This lovely silver pendant started its life as clay – metal clay.  Not too long ago, Japanese engineers discovered a way to combine silver with a binder to create a soft, malleable clay easily formed into jewelry. When it’s fired, the binder burns away and your creation is now fine silver (.999 silver).
“It’s almost like working with Playdough,” laughs Charlotte Edwards, metal clay instructor.  “You can make just about anything with it that you can imagine!  Our students also really love the instant gratification. Beginning students can make a simple piece and fire it in their first class, walking out with a unique pendant or pair of earrings that they made totally from scratch. It’s easy, fast, and addictive!”
“Plus,” she adds, “there’s no guessing:  what you see in the clay form is exactly what you get when it’s fired.  Also, some stones can be set and fired directly with the clay. Even beginning students can quickly learn to make pretty complicated pieces of jewelry.”
Ring by Cherie Fruehan, made in her fifth class
Charlotte started making jewelry as a metals fabricator, but was rapidly drawn to metal clay because of its versatility, and how quickly a project can be completed.  She is now one of a handful of metal clay instructors certified by Art Clay in the Dallas area.  She began teaching at the Guild last year, and expanded her classes this year due to growing demand.
Charlotte watches as a student fires her first silver pendant

This summer, Charlotte is teaching three metal clay classes each session, and has scheduled several one-day workshops.  For a list of metal clay classes, click here.
