@Hippie 9 well I would suggest if you're scared, you should definitely take a class or there's always the option of using a kiln... from my experience if you're jumpy, it's best not to experiment by yourself in case anything goes bad. But if you go the creme brulee torch route those are usually easier to use because the button has to be pushed down to remain on and there's usually a safety lock on it too! I would say it's the most controlled and least intimidating torch to use.

@craftylittlemonkey lol!! my bad. yes, precious metal clay. when you torch it, it's silver so it's pretty substantial granted it'll flex, bend and snap if you force it hard enough (but I assume you don't take out your aggression on jewelry haha Smiley). You just have to apply enough layers so that there's some thickness to it.

These pendants are gorgeous.  Don't know how I missed them, but you did such a lovely job working with the PMC.  I love all the detail in your leaf pieces!

Sorry, don't know any sites or books...I just look at other people's work.

It's not that pricey... paid about $39.15 for 28g which is pretty cheap! I'm only half way through my packet and made all that I posted and a little more. Cheaper than silver charms you can buy at stores!
