This is from my collection of PMC (precious metal clay) pendants. PMC is more pure than sterling silver. It contains particles of pure silver mixed with an organic binder. When the binder is burned away during firing, it leaves a pendant of 99.9% pure silver.

***What is PMC? PMC comes from a method that was developed by Mitsubishi in the 1990s. It allowed for precious metals to be combined into a type of clay that could be used to make jewelry and other products. Very eco-friendly, made from recycled products! I am even able to use the leftover clay and “mistakes” again by re-constituting the clay and creating a new product.

***Is PMC better than sterling? The difference between PMC silver and sterling silver is that PMC is 99.9% pure silver. Sterling is only 92.5% silver with the remaining 7.5% composed of other metals, usually copper. They look, wear & polish the same, but PMC is more "pure" and is, therefore, more costly and often considered more valuable than sterling.

I've made a clay mold out of a ganesh figure, then pressed the silver clay into it to create the pendant.

The pendant is handcrafted by me, then fired with a torch. After that, it was dipped into a solution to give it an antiqued patina, then tumbled to polish it to a high shine.

This piece is definitely unique, containing tiny marks and faint fingerprints on the back of the pendant where i worked and formed the clay. I decided to keep these because it shows that the pendant is made by hand and one of a kind.

PENDANT: 1/4 inch
CORD LENGTH: 18-20 inches, adjustable
