This remarkable clay can be formed much like ceramic clay; it can be stamped, carved or impressed with diverse objects to create unique patterns and designs. The first session involves forming and embellishing the jewelry components. The instructor fires jewelry pieces between weekly sessions. Finish your pieces in the second session, fashioning them into artful creations, whether a pendant, pair of earrings or bracelet, ready to wear.
