Clay is a very versatile material that is used in most of arts and crafts. Metal clay is clay like substance but when it is fired in a kiln, it becomes dense like metal. Currently, two companies are manufacturing metal clay and their products are called PMC and Art Clay. There are different types of metal clay such as, syringe, lump, paper and slip. The difference is the amount of metal that is mixed with amount of organic material.

Using Metal Clay For Jewelry Making

Metal clay can be used to create your own unique and artistic jewelry. Metal clay is made up of small particles of pure metal such as silver or gold, held together by organic binders. The soft and smooth texture of clay comes from these binders. This allows you to give any desired shape to metal clay for jewelry making. When the clay is heated in the kiln or with butane torch, the binders burn away and you are left with a design in solid form that is ready for finishing touches.

As there are precious metals in it, metal clay is little expensive. But, using metal clay for jewelry making requires much less time as compared to other traditional methods. The equipments and tools that are required to make metal clay jewelry are less expensive and easy to use. But, it is important to note that the final look of metal clay jewelry is rough as compared to traditionally made metallic jewellery.

So, if you are looking for absolutely smooth finish pieces, metal clay jewelry might not be for you. Or, you can use the metal clay sparingly so that you can make use of its properties, but get a better finish for the final product.

Once you are convinced that metal clay is what you want for your jewelry, you will need some basic tools, will have to set up a work area and choose the type of clay. And if you are not familiar already, you will have to learn some basic finishing techniques. You can also attend metal jewelry making classes where you can learn all the basics of jewelry making and then proceed with the metal of your own choice.

Precious Metal Clay (PMC) is more commonly used metal clay for jewelry making. All silver clays are 99.9% pure silver and only .1% is non-silver metal. Lump clays can be rolled and textured in any shape. As fine details can be seen on metal clay, molding, stamping and texturing are most common techniques for making its jewelry.
