Our silver clay workshop allows you to make your very own silver pendant.

Silver Clay Jewellery

Silver clay is a precious metal clay. It looks and feels like ordinary porcelain clay, but has fine particles of pure silver mixed with a non-toxic binder.

During this workshop our tutors will guide you through shaping and adding texture to the silver clay before drying, sanding and burnishing. Your piece will then be fired in our kilns. Whilst in the kiln, the binder burns away, leaving you with a 99.9% silver pendant.

The results are quite remarkable.

Your  pendant will come complete with a silver chain and gift bag – making it an ideal gift.
