I've been wanting to try Silver Art Clay for the longest time. I don't work with polymer clay because I am just too lazy to do all that work even though the results are really pretty cool. But I was willing to try silver art clay because I love silver and it didn't seem as time consuming. I finally found a class for it at a Park Slope art store, The Artful Place. Fuji also holds mosaic and beading classes and her brother teaches drawing and other fine art classes. Here is my first ever silver piece:
I added the green glass bead later on. I just love it! I'm sure Fuji probably thought I was a pyro because every time it was time to use the butane torch, I'd get excited. It was just that Yves was so adamant that I do not work with fire in the house. Here are the earrings I made:
First I made the bottom squares and I wasn't happy with them because they were so small and kind boring. So I thought of making a longer piece to go on top. I think it worked out well! I was so excited when I got home and starting looking for supplies on the internet. I think I was able to talk Yves into letting me work with fire. As long as there is a fire extinguisher close by.
