From DaisyJaneDesigns Bio:
"Thank you for stopping by DaisyJaneDesigns.
I have been making Fine Silver PMC jewelry now for about 2 years. PMC is a wonderful material that offers a diversity that sterling silver doesn’t. PMC is made of tiny particles of pure silver suspended in an organic binder. The binder is basically clay made out of plant matter. I squish, roll, press, stamp, carve, mold, cut, sand, join, dry, and then fire the clay either with a torch or in a kiln. PMC must fired at 1100 – 1650 degrees to ensure strength. PMC does not contain copper or any other metal that would make it an alloy, like sterling silver. Sterling silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals which is usually copper. Fired PMC is 99.9% pure silver!"
I am such a ring whore and this one keeps calling to me. There is so much fine detail on it. You have to look at the other images of it and see what I mean. PMC is such a fascinating material I'd love to try it if only I had a kiln. If I tried a torch I'm sure I'd set something on fire, probably me.
