Accomplished clay artists can utilize the same methods with metal by using these special supplies and tools. Metal clay is a mixture of real powdered metal, organic binders and water that can be shaped, molded and fired like regular clay. You then apply traditional metalworking techniques to fine-tune the final product. This combination of clay sculpting and metalsmithing lets more people create metal jewelry, accessories and décor in an easier and safer way.
Fire Mountain Gems and Beads has everything you need for one-of-a-kind metal clay jewelry. Design precious metal treasures using fine silver clay, sterling silver clay and 22-karat gold clay. We also have copper and bronze jewelry clay — some of which has artisan color powder for jewelry that looks naturally aged. Shop top brands such as Prometheus and Art Clay that produce metal clays formulated for a dense, strong piece.
