Pod cluster necklace silver clay and lava

Silver Clay is an amazing material which handles like clay but once fired becomes pure silver. It is perfect material for beginners to use as silver jewellery can be produced using few tools and with no previous experience. I teach classes in my own studio, see details below. At Central Scotland School of Jewellery and also at West Dean College. Below are some pictures of work produced by students.
