Organic Rings in PMC REGISTER

This is a beautiful way to make a one-of-a-kind ring in sterling silver set with a gemstone. This organic wrap ring will evoke floral ideas, and you may embellish the ring with a cabochon set in a soldered bezel. Use the magical medium of silver metal clay to form your ring. Then the dried silver clay is placed into a kiln and fired where the particles sinter and become solid silver metal!

Students will polish and set their stones, then wear home your creation at the end of the day.
