Sterling silver clay

These are just a few of my new PMC charm necklaces. The whale was a antique leather button which i made a mold from. The compass was a wax seal and the anchor was an antique button that I used as a impression. This is first time that I have tried out the new Sterling silver PMC clay.
The pro's are that people understand what .925 is about. It is harder than fine silver. It has a hint of a golden color to it, because they add bronze clay to the fine silver. The con's are that you have to fire in the kiln twice. Which in my case take a long while.
I also tried copper clay which was a lot of fun. Because it's so reasonable I can make  much larger pieces.
