When this husband and wife team, who live in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, combined their love and expertise of working with clay and sterling silver, ‘Silveramics’ Jewelry was born. It’s a playful approach to jewelry making by combining colored porcelain clay and sterling silver. David will guide students in the creation of colorful marbled elements from fresh porcelain clay that will be fired and tumbled to a durable and silky finish. Using diamond encrusted drill bits, Molly will then show students how to drill holes into the fired porcelain pieces and ways to fabricate sterling silver elements to create earrings, pendants, necklaces, rings, and bracelets. No experience needed!
