Handmade Silver Jewelry

Handmade silver jewelry is unique; no two pieces are exactly alike, and it never goes out of style. Some of the most beautiful pieces are actually made out of sheets of sterling silver and precious metal clay or PMC and wire. Precious metal clay is silver clay that can be shaped into almost any design. After the jewelry piece is designed and fired, all the binders from the clay are removed and the result is a fine silver pure handcrafted silver jewelry piece.

PMC is used by silver designers to create intricate designs and fine pieces that would not be possible with traditional metalworking methods. PMC can help create three-dimensional designs that will be heirlooms in your family for generations to come.
When checking the quality of silver jewelry that is handmade ensure there are no white spots on the handmade silver jewelry. Check and make sure the design is smooth and there are no bumps or cracks.
