On this ring, Janet Alexander experiments with soldering PMC Sterling.

Janet is metal artist and instructor with decades of experience who writes in wonderful detail about the specific questions she has regarding this material.

In her PMC Sterling Silver Report post, Janet investigates many questions, including:

  • How well does it rehydrate?
  • How well does it grind up?
  • Can I add copper wire as a decorative object?
  • Can I complete granulation on SS Clay?

In her Testing Sterling Silver Clay Again post, Janet experiments with channel-setting stones in a hollow PMC Sterling™ ring. She thoughtfully records all her findings on her blog and she inspires us!
