Metal clay is fine particles of 99.9% fine silver, which when combined with an organic binder and water can be manipulated like clay. When fired in a kiln or with a torch the binder is burned away leaving the metal in solid form. It can be sculpted, cast and textured to create beautiful fine jewelry. This is the perfect medium for the novice and professional alike.
