Made from pure silver Precious Metal Clay (PMC). A pair of stud earrings. The top photo shows the earrings under construction – completely dried, mostly refined, but unfired. The tail fins have to be buttered on with semi liquid PMC. I use playing cards, not only to measure the thickness of the clay as I roll it out, but also (as shown in the photo) to support the body of the earrings whilst I affix the fins. The bottom photo shows the fired earrings polished up.
