The jewelry is of .999 fine silver & 24k gold, Precious Metal Clay. Precious Metal Clay (PMC) is a revolutionary new material in the jewelry world developed in the early 1990’s. The ingredients of PMC are micro-particles of pure silver or pure gold suspended in “clay” consisting of water and organic naturally occurring plant-based binder. The binder or clay is non-toxic in both its raw and fired form and completely evaporates in the firing process.
These metal pieces are then mixed & paired with a collage of precious & semiprecious stones to become earrings, bracelets, rings & necklaces.
