When shopping for an important piece of jewelry, most of my clients know the design or style theyve set their hearts on. But when asked about their preference for precious metals, their answers can be a bit more hazy. It can be confusing parsing through your wide variety of options.

In the words of designer, jeweler and PMC® master Tim McCreight, "Every material has its special properties and one of the tasks inherent to each of us as artists is to figure out how to make the best use of those properties."

This project challenges you to see Precious Metal Clay as a signature element no matter what the preferred medium may be.
