Classes

I currently teach Precious Metal Clay (PMC), Bronze and Copper Clay (Mixed Metal Clay Jewelry) and Fused Art Glass Jewelry classes at a variety of places in Pennsylvania. I am a certified PMC teacher/artisan through PMC Connection. In 2014, I will be having more classes in my home studio in the various media I work in–such as Silver Metal Clay (PMC), Bronze & Copper Clay and Fused Glass Jewelry. These classes will be limited to 4 people for a more intensive learning experience. If a class date and time doesn’t suit you, contact me for private tuition rates and to schedule a session. Students who don’t have kilns can also have their work fired and tumbled by arrangement. Just e-mail me: lezsct2005@ verizon.net or call  me at 717-380-6299! Please check back as this page changes!

SILVER METAL CLAY (PMC) JEWELRY

Location:  My home studio in Lancaster, PA.
Cost: Members: $135.00 plus cost of PMC3 at market prices.

Precious Metal Clay (PMC) is fine silver metal clay which enables almost any one to create their own unique “pure silver” jewelry with very simple tools!  One form is of lump wet clay that can be rolled, imprinted with rubber stamps, pressed into molds and cut into simple shapes to create fine silver earrings, pendants, beads and charms. No experience necessary. Tool kits will be provided for student use.  Utilizing texture mats, rubber stamps, molds, and clay cutters provided by me, students can create multiple jewelry pieces. The number of pieces will vary according to the size packet of clay a student uses and the size of the jewelry pieces. We will work with PMC3 which also enables students to create pieces with fused glass. The price of PMC is tied to the daily silver market & thus changes each day. Current prices can range from $35-$80 depending on size of packet and form of PMC bought. I will be firing student work off site. Work completed during the last class will be mailed to the student. Students purchase PMC from me. I am a certified PMC instructor since 2004. My work is published in the PMC Guild Annual and Metal Clay Artist magazine.
