It was fantastic to see silver clay being featured on Make! Craft Britain on BBC Four this week. In case you missed it, the series showcases two main crafts per episode and this week it included cross stitch and silver clay. Silver clay is a great craft to feature as it is an easy way to make silver jewellery from home with little need for equipment. Jewellery artist Lisa Cain taught the silver clay class from a gorgeous location in Newcastle and it was lovely to see beginners so excited about their work.
If you missed it and you're in the UK you can watch the replay on BBC iplayer here until 27th April 2018. Unfortunately, it isn't available to watch outside the UK (the BBC is paid for by a licence fee and you have to be a fee payer to watch).
However, they have released this clip of the polishing and burnishing of the final pieces which is available worldwide and you can watch it here (click the link below).

I hope that seeing silver clay in action on the programme has whetted your appetite!
If you'd like to join me to learn how to make your own silver clay jewellery (including a croissant, a bee, sunflower earrings or a rose as seen in the programme!) then do have a look at my available teaching dates and book a place. I teach mostly in Edinburgh and you can find my dates for classes here. I also teach periodically in London and you can find my teaching dates here.
