Beginners metal clay class

Last week I taught two beginners metal clay classes at the London Jewellery School. It's one of my favourite classes to teach as it is great to show new people how to use metal clay and get them excited about the possibilities.
During the course we work on three projects - they learnt to make earrings with a consistent thickness and texture. Then I taught them how to make their own silicone mould and they made a silver charm. Finally, I taught them how to set a stone in the clay. Then they learnt how to file and finish the pieces before torch firing them and polishing.

These are photos of the pieces made by complete beginners. I'm really impressed.
