Silver Jewellery


I create silver leaf pendants and earrings using fresh green leaves with pronounced veins from her garden (and from other peoples!). I coat the veined side of the leaf with several layers of silver paste. Once the desired thickness is achieved and the silver is completely dry, the leaf is fired in the kiln. The leaf burns away, leaving its "imprint" (in mirror image) on the face of the silver. The silver leaf is then polished and/or textured, depending on the desired effect.

I also create filigree silver pendants. Using cork clay, she makes the desired shape (oval, round, spherical, tubular, etc). Once the cork is completely dry, Pamela uses silver clay in a syringe to 'pipe' a filigree design onto the cork. When the silver has fully dried, the pendant is fired in the kiln, where the cork simply burns away ... leaving the delicate hollow filigree shape.

To create these unique pendants, brooches and earrings, I use Precious Metal Clay (PMC), which is 99.9% silver, in a number of ways:

1. I make a cork shape and then, using a syringe, the PMC is piped onto the cork mould. Or strips are fixed in place over the mould and decorated using a syringe. During the firing, the cork burns away, leaving the hollow shape.

2. I thin the PMC down to a thick paste and then paint about 10 layers of it onto a dried leaf. During the firing, the leaf burns away and the shape of the leaf and veins is revealed in the sliver.

3. If I find ferns or leaves which are robust enough, I take moulds of them. Then I roll out a fine slab of sliver clay and press the mould into it. When the clay dries to a firm texture, I then cut out the shape of the leaf, which I then fire.

4. I trace or draw a design or picture on some paper and then go over the design with the syringe. When fired, this makes a delightful, delicate piece of jewellery, but quite fragile.
