Living in a forest affords me lots of natural material to work with. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we have towering hemlocks, fir and cedar. We just trimmed a large cedar and I pressed it's branch into silver to make this one. Set with a "peridot" CZ, reminiscent of the cool deep green of the forest.
Silver Art Clay is made from silver reclaimed from photography and X-ray film, combined with an organic binder. It can be formed just like clay: rolled, stamped, coiled, joined, and is then dried. Then it is fired by kiln or flame and the organics burn out, leaving either fine or sterling silver depending upon the formula. It is versatile and fun to work!
