Silver Fern Necklace 11

Sterling silver metal clay consists of sterling silver particles suspended in an organic binder. After forming, drying and refining the piece is fired in a kiln. During this time the binder burns off and the result is a piece that is .925 sterling silver. After firing it has been tumbled to bring out the silver shine. Lastly it has been dipped in an oxidizing agent and the piece has been polished by hand to bring out the beautiful details of the textures.
