This kit was recently reviewed in Beadwork Magazine. Excerpt from the review is: "If you have always wanted to try working with Precious Metal Clay but are discouraged by the cost of the setup, get a hold of the PMC3 Deluxe Jewelry Clay Kit from Delphi. This kit comes with everything you need to make your very own PMC pieces. I had no PMC experience and quite honestly, was a bit overwhelmed when I started working with the kit. However, I found plenty of instruction and ideas on Delphi's website, and now I feel like a PMC pro!"
Earrings made by Mary Ann Devos. From "Introduction to Metal Clay" book #6289.
Pros : Complete basic tool kit to make jewelry within a couple of hours. Everything you need to try out this exciting craft, including instructions for a matching pendant and earrings set. Within a couple of hours (most of that just playing with modeling clay for ideas) I had a new pendant necklace...great for gifts!
You can probably create a unique hand made piece of silver jewelry nearly as fast as going to the store and buying it!
Cons : There were a couple of things listed in the instructions that came with other kits, but nothing that would stop you (e.g. guides to achieve proper thickness of clay, paintbrush). My hot pot did crack on the first fire but the instructions said this is OK.
There was a pretty big flame out of this hot pot (6-7" higher than pot). Be very careful where you decide to use it. I will probably only fire this outside in the future. Even if nothing is nearby, it is a bit of a worry.
Other Thoughts : Definitely invest in some modeling clay to play around with first.
Remember to cover the plastic patterns with a bit of cooking oil - in fact I think the patterns may not work without doing this (from experience!).
The fire screen requires some bending and I ended up getting quite a cut from doing this. It seemed very easy so I didn't think! :) Some utility gloves would be good to wear at that point.

National Book Lovers Day is a lesser known holiday - much to my disappointment. Its celebrated on August 9th every year. I love books. I love books so much that in my house, every day is Book Lovers Day. Im hoping youll join me in celebrating for this one day at least though. "A book is a gift you can open again and again." – Garrison Keillor "A home without books is like a room without windows." – Horace Mann Books have always held a special place in my heart. They open up a world of new possibilities to me. Each time I come back to a book, I bring fresh experiences and perspective to it, which lets me take something new away from it. Art books are no different. In addition to the bones of the process, the invaluable instruction that they present, they offer an opportunity to dream
