Silver Purl – Bling for your string
At Silver Purl we’ve been creating distinctive designs by joining metal clay, beads including agate, jasper and semi precious stones, lustrous pearls and fiber together since 2001.
My main medium is silver clay, also known as precious metal clay. Metal clay is made with reclaimed and recycled metals such as silver, bronze and copper. It starts as mold-able clay like polymer clay. I can form it to my desired shape and texture then it is fired in a kiln where the binder is burned off, the heat binds the silver molecules together and the final product is a stunning piece made of 99.5% pure silver.
A new edition to Silver Purl is fingerprint jewelry. This is such a delightful way to capture your child’s youth…
