5 sticks of metal clay, Precious Clay, or PMC, are strung on a 23 inch sterling silver chain.
PMC was developed in Mitsubishi, Japan. The clay is a soft patty with the texture of Play-Do. It has sterling silver granules embedded in a filler. It is molded, shaped or textured, allowed to dry and put in a kiln where the filler burns off. The finished product is 99% pure silver, with a higher silver content than sterling silver. The absence of the additional substances, like tin and copper, diminishes the likelihood of tarnish.
The sticks vary in length from 1-1/4 to 1-3/4 inches and are strung randomly. They are plain, without embellishment or texture.
The sticks appear clustered in my photos, but when worn, they spread apart to, giving a fan-like appearance.
This is a rather simple look and, so, compliments most outfits.
My jewelry pieces are made with care and an attention to detail. Natural elements, such as rocks, sea glass and driftwood, are featured in many of them.
I hope you see something you like.
