Silver clay is an amazing new form of silver that can be shaped with your fingers like clay. You will learn the basic techniques of how to roll, cut, texture and finish the clay. By the end of the course, you will have designed and created two or three finished pieces of real silver jewellery, such as a pendant and earrings or two necklaces and a brooch. You will also have gained the skills and confidence to continue creating designs in silver clay on your own at home. No previous experience is necessary.
