Working with Precious Metal Clay

Linda Hanson, our hostess for the retreat and owner of After Midnight Art Stamps, is a certified instructor for PMC, Precious Metal Clay.

She is so talented with this medium. Taking her classes is great fun and a wonderful learning experience.

See what we made!!!
99.9% fine silver pendants - hand made by us in only one evening.

Pat made a beautiful, very heavy cameo using one of the Krafty Lady Art moulds. I can't wait to see what she does with this.
I'll be watching her blog to see her other PMC pieces posted.

Linda used one of her PMC pieces as an embellishment on her shrine.

I had fun creating some new pendant designs. I was doing some "heavier" looking pieces than I had done in my previous classes. The little charm piece is the dab i had left over rolled out and stamped. That will go on a charm bracelet I'm working on.

Linda used the Celestial Horse stamp to make a fantastic pendant.
The Celestial Horse stamp in this size is only available to artists attending the retreats.
She wore this a few days later on a trip to Tubac and had a couple of gallery owners ask for the name of the artist who made it.
It is great to be able to say "I'm the artist" when people ask that question. :)

Even the back of the pendants are beautiful.

My cameo turned out gorgeous!! I hadn't seen it finished (it still needed to be fired). All the others are awesome too. I learned soooo much in the six days and found many more things to be addicted to. Everyone really does have to go. It is soooo worth it. Patricia
