PMC earrings I made
Thought you'd like to see a pair of PMC (Precious Metal Clay) silver earrings I made.
PMC isn't quite as easy as they like to make out. The actual modelling of the clay, and the firing, are easy peasy. The hard bit is polishing with a wire brush and then burnishing with a steel - this is the killer bit!
Very hard on the hands - and as I've got RSI and had the op for carpal tunnel on both hands, after making a few PMC pieces, much as I love the stuff, I've had to concede it's not for me.
I've dated and initialled this pair on the backs, the safety ear wires (so you don't lose them) are Sterling Silver, hallmarked ...
Abstract, just a little bit different!
