Tools and materials for making silver clay jewellery from home


We love silver clay! It’s a great way of working with hallmark-quality silver from home. You buy the clay ready made and can work with it directly from the packet. Silver clay is made of recycled silver particles, an organic binder and water. It can be moulded and shaped like a clay and is fired with a jewellers torch to make it into real silver.

If you’d like to give it a try but are not sure of the tools and materials you need you’re in luck! Watch our video rundown of everything you need to know.


For working with metal clay a jewellers torch is a must. Here is how to safely fill your gas torch at home. Make sure you always do so in a well ventilated area away from any flames.


We hope you’ve found this rundown of tools and materials helpful. We’d love to hear about your favourite tools so do join our Facebook group or check us out on Instagram.
