Creating Elegant Cuffs from EZ960 Sterling Silver Metal Clay

Instructor Bio: 
54 minutes

Join Lis-el Crowley, founder, and director of the Metal Clay Artisan Guild in CT and creator and organizer of the Metal Clay Mojo Conference, and learn how to make these elegant cuffs from EZ960 sterling silver metal clay.

One of the most exciting new developments in metal clay is EZ960, an open shelf fired clay made of 96 percent silver and 4 percent copper. This clay combines the ease of firing like fine silver clay but with the added strength of sterling silver.

Lis-el will show you step-by-step how to create strong and durable cuffs that can be fired flat and then shaped after firing allowing for endless artistic freedom in creating a cuff design.

Lis-el will also reveal the best working and firing practices for this clay, as well as post-firing finishing and forming techniques.

**Plus** Ms. Crowley will cover creating bezels for focal piece stones using a unique template system that gives perfect bezel results every time.

From elegant art nouveau styled designs to classic simple forms and everything in between, you will be able to create a cuff that is true to your creative vision.
