Charlotte Edwards | C.E. Designs
Live Demo: Friday, 10/26, 6:45 p.m. & Saturday, 10/27, 10 a.m. & 2 p.m.
Charlotte will be demonstrating how to take silver metal clay and turn it into a fine silver piece of jewelry (fine silver being .999% silver, as opposed to .925% that is sterling). The metal clay is made up of Nano particles of silver, an organic binder, and water. Once the clay is sculpted, rolled, or otherwise manipulated into the desired shape, it is dried (to remove moisture), then fired with the torch, to remove the binder and sinter the fine silver particles. Once fired and sintered, you are left with a fine silver piece of jewelry.
After working a few years, doing fabrication, Charlotte was introduced to metal clay. Although she loves both, she really loves metal clay more. Although she normally fire the pieces in a kiln, she always teaches torch firing for those times who are in the need to whip up a gift!
Charlotte is Sr. Certified and has been teaching metal clay classes for the past three or so - first at The Craft Guild of Dallas, and now currently in her home studio.
