Torch Firing 24K Gold on to Fine Silver by Jennifer Dins

  

In this video, Jennifer torch fires an Art Clay Silver piece, and then applies Accent Gold for Silver, which she also torch fires for the perfect 24K gold accent. The raised areas of the piece are burnished. Not burnishing the lower area leaves a white color, which really gives the piece a unique look. Art Clay Silver can be fired using a torch or a kiln.

Jennifer Dins has been making metal clay jewelry since 2009, after a potentially terminal cancer diagnosis in 2006 permanently sidelined her from a 25-year management career, she retired in 2009 and to follow her creative heart and to explore this new medium. Working this clay is easy on her sore hands and joints and allows her to feel a sense of accomplishment every time a piece is complete. The uniqueness of this material allows her to add personalized fingerprints, paw prints and even handwriting directly into the silver. She now believes it is her calling to help people manage a particularly difficult time through the creation of meaningful sterling silver heirloom pieces.
