Metal Clay Workshops with Metal Keys Designs

If you can play with play dough, you can make jewellery using metal clay! Art Clay Silver is a non-toxic clay made of recycled fine silver particles combined with an organic binder. After forming and finishing the clay, you will use a small butane torch to fire your piece to burn away the organic binder. After firing, you will have a solid piece of 99.9% fine silver jewellery. You will be amazed at the results!

 

Metal Keys Designs is owned by metal clay artist Tracy Lai. Tracy specializes in creating jewellery using fine and sterling silver. Her pieces often incorporate enamels, stones, resin, Keum Boo, and mixed metals. Tracy comes from an arts background and her works are influenced by her interests in music, Asian art, and styles of the past such as Art Deco and Art Nouveau.

 

Tracy is an Art Clay Senior Certified Instructor. She teaches in Simcoe County, Ontario and in the Greater Toronto Area. Tracy continues to keep up to date of the development of metal clay by regularly attending classes, including Instructor Intensives at Art Clay World.
