Silver clay

Creative freedom in fine silver

In contrast to the rigid form of precious metal, silver clay is a pliable material that can be shaped and moulded into a specific form, either with your hands or using a variety of tools. This opens up a whole new range of creative options and gives considerable artistic freedom when it comes to the design of precious metal.

Jewellery making with silver clay

Silver clay can be moulded into any shape and given a virtually unlimited range of surface structures, e.g. by working it with stamps, toothbrushes, skewers, socks, etc. The clay can be cut or pierced, and small individual parts can be attached to larger items by simply pressing them on. Precious stones can also be added, the most suitable being stones which contain aluminium oxide, such as rubies and sapphires. These stones are automatically securely fixed due to the shrinkage of the modelling clay that occurs during firing.

2–3 days at room temperature or 1 hour in an oven at 80° C

In a furnace with temperature control

The fired clay jewellery can then be finished in just the same way as a conventionally created item of jewellery. The only thing that must be borne in mind when designing jewellery is that the drying and firing cause the silver clay to shrink by approx. 30%.

For a firing fee, C.HAFNER will also fire your silver clay jewellery for you.
