What is Precious Metal Clay (PMC) and why is it so popular with jewelry artists? PMC is 99% pure fine silver, whereas sterling silver is only 92.5% silver. PMC comes in a soft, pliable form (like clay, but oh-so-different). This new media can be molded, sculpted, stamped and textured to make unique pendants, earrings and charms - all with no sawing needed. The fine silver included in the class fee will make several jewelry projects.
