Q.
Is it possible to fire Swarovski crystals with Art Clay or PMC (as you can with CZs) without harm to the stone?

A.
You cannot fire Swarovski crystals into any metal clay; they will melt causing the crystal to lose its facets and sometimes distort the color at the higher temperatures needed to sinter the metal. Consider adding prongs, settings or a cavity to your clay design so after firing and finishing the metal clay, the crystals can be set or glued into place.
