What is Silver Clay / Art Clay? Silver Clay is part of the metal clay family. It is a fabulous medium for making just about anything, from the simplest piece to the most intricate patterns. It's great for all skill levels and fires as Fine Silver (99.9% pure) which is a higher quality that the jewellery "norm" of Sterling Silver (92.5%). It is the versatility of silver clay that makes it so popular and accessible to create pieces without the need for intricate techniques or tools. You can knead it, roll it, beat it, stretch it, texture it, fold it or anything else really. You can even colour it, we're told!
