I loved making these Steampunk animals, and I want to make more. Its getting used to the PMC- (it's so elastic) and learning how to sculpt with it, and then using the torch to sinter the silver. It's just soooo what I like to do.

These are the little things I made in PMC class. I just can't stop looking at them. I can't believe that those small lumps of stamped clay became real silver! Unbelievable! I can't wait to really explore the medium and make things that reflect my own style.
I recently took a class in Precious Metal Clay. When I first heard about it, I really was so excited! This is a medium I know- CLAY!!!! I've got a major in Ceramic Sculpture and I've been making miniatures in Fimo for a long long time. So for me, PMC might just open up a whole new way of making jewelry , and my sketch book is getting crammed full of ideas.
My Cancer Support Team- My best friends- (whom I consider my family)- have been very supportive of my decision to explore this new medium, and they have helped me get a torch, metal clay and other necessities. I can't tell you how this sort of support really encourages me to create, live my life without fear and move forward. I think all Cancer Survivors need that sense of hope, of life moving forward. You can't get stuck worrying.
