What is Silver Clay?
Precious metal clay, or silver clay, is a malleable material composed entirely of microscopic particles of fine silver mixed with water and a non-toxic organic binder. It can be worked like traditional clay using the hands, or else molded.
Once the object is dry, it is passed through an oven or a sufficient heat source, rising to 900 ° C. At this temperature, the binder burns, the fine silver particles (999/1000 grade) merge. The result is a 99.9% pure silver object that can be further worked with traditional techniques.
Silver paste comes from the recycling of electronic waste and was created in the 1990s in Japan by the Mitsubishi Materials Corporation (Precious Metal Clay) and AIDA Chemical Industries (Art Clay Silver).
My creative story
I have been making jewelry with organic shapes, all handmade in my studio in Mont St-Hilaire, since 2006.
I work with silver and bronze to create rings, pendants, earrings and bracelets. Most of my designs are gender neutral and suitable for both men and women.
In 2015, I left my regular job to develop my art and devote myself entirely to my work as a jeweler.
Since 2017, I have been sharing my passion for the technique of precious silver clay, still little known in Quebec, by giving creative workshops.
