    2 Week Class on Sunday afternoons from 1:00 - 4:30pm (see specific dates)

    Create an Adjustable Sterling Silver Ring using EZ960 Silver Metal Clay 

    Beginning level class - this is a 2 week class. The first Sunday you will design, plan & form your metal clay. The second Sunday you will shape your metal into a ring and give it a final polish.

    Metal clay is a relatively new medium, invented in Japan around 1990. Metal is ground into a powder and organic binders and water are added to the powder to make a workable clay. It is fun and easy to work with, and gives you endless design and texture possibilities, not possible with sheet metal.  It can be sculpted, textured, molded, embellished, and fired in a kiln on an open shelf.  After firing, you will have a solid sterling silver piece of jewelry.

    If you have clay left over, many students are also able to make a pair of earrings and a pendant in addition to the ring!
