About

Behind the Scenes...

Our shop is small, but full of love and creativity!!

After I played a bit with silver metal clay, my husband wanted to open a shop to "pay for my art". It really is relaxing for me to create with soft clay and to see people's ideas and designs come to life as a heirloom piece of jewelry in fine silver!

WELCOME to our shop, and thank you for your interest in our fine silver metal clay pieces!

Each of our pieces is painstakingly and lovingly created one at a time, so no two are exactly the same! Because each item is crafted and polished by hand to a deep luster, any imperfections are part of the character of the piece.

If you would like us to consider creating something special just for you, please contact us!

Read further for some information on our amazing (and relatively NEW) art medium…

• Metal clay is a clay-like medium consisting of very small particles of precious metals (such as silver, gold, platinum, or copper) mixed with an organic binder and water. Metal clay is then shaped just like any soft clay.

• After drying, the clay is fired in a variety of ways including in a kiln, with a hand held gas torch, or on a gas stove. During the firing process, the organic binders burn away and the resulting silver particles sinter (to become a coherent mass by heating without melting). As a result, the piece becomes denser & stronger. Firing causes the piece to shrink anywhere between 8% and 30% (depending on the product used).

• Once completely fired, the remaining piece is composed of 99.9% pure silver, which is also known as “Fine Silver"...and will make a heirloom piece to be cherished for years to come!
