Description: - Precious Metal Clay or PMC utilizes a material that consists of
ground up precious metals mixed with an organic binder, that is shaped,
molded, or pressed into whatever design you want. You can bezel set stones
or gems, create pendants with pressed images, or freeform your own
creating. Your project is then heated either in a kiln or with a torch until all the
organic material is burnt off and you are left with a pure metal fabrication.
When it comes to jewelry making, the options for this medium are endless.
