I personnaly like semi-precious and gemstones.

Their uniqueness makes my creations one-of-a-kind.

Silver Clay beads

Post  jane.irwin on Thu Jan 31, 2008 11:40 am

Oh that would be nice. I wanted to try the silver clay but don't need any jewelry....But beads would be so nice and I could use them around my neck or in stitch markers for knitting. Gee I could even give them away!!!

I like receiving gifts flower
Actually this leads to a question I have. Is it possible to create something with clay - ..maybe a bead (??), and then work some silver clay details into the surface? Are they compatible or would it just be a no-no?

Oh yes that is totally possible! In fact I will be having a class on making **big** silver clay beads. We will use clay as part of it! Let me know a good date for you if you are interested in the class. I think it will be an evening class. Maybe a Thursday or Friday Night. Check out the class calendar on the web-site to see open dates. And then I post a class time.

Now THAT sounds exciting!! I'll keep my eye on the calendar, it would be nice if it were when the evenings were a bit brighter and the weather not so snowy, but it doesn't really matter.

silver clay beads

Post  Deb Fortin on Thu Feb 21, 2008 10:30 am

Hi Jeannette and Louise and Jane. I have a recent beading magazine that shows and tells how to "paint" lava beads with silver clay paste. they look amazing. I'll bring the mag into the store if you ladies want to take a look. it might be an idea for one of the monthly clay projects.

I can't wait for our class. The possiblilies are endless! JHere is a peak at some of Jackie's new work....she has made some art pieces using silver clay and glass!! I think you will LOVE this piece. She won a prize for it in Japan!

Oh my gosh that is incredible detail! I have to confess I don't know what a lava bead is, but that piece there certainly deserved to win something!

The dragon piece is with Art Clay and glass.

The lava beads are just that lava...so they look like black feta cheese. We can paint them with silver clay and make really interesting beads.
