Charms can hold special memories for many of us — they may commemorate a significant event, a special trip, an enjoyable experience, or celebrate a momentous occasion. Some are even lucky charms. Discover how to capture your memories in silver metal clay with award-winning artist Lyle Rayfield.  Microscopic particles of pure silver are combined with an organic binder to produce the clay-like substance known as silver metal clay. When fired at high temperatures, the binder burns off and the metal particles fuse into a solid piece of silver. Students learn basic metal clay techniques and create personalized bracelet charms, from stamping clay with descriptive words or symbols, to capturing fingerprints, to making molds for charm replication. No experience is necessary and all skill levels are welcome. Demonstrations and instruction will cover how to properly roll, texture, shape, refine, fire, and finish metal clay creations. All materials supplied, but please bring a magnifying glass and an apron if you have them.
