Copper Clay Project: Cinnamon Stick Earrings

When asked to give advice for beginners, it occurred to me that a lot of people are currently introduced to copper and bronze clay before having the chance to experience silver clay. When a student starts taking my classes as a beginner, I automatically start with silver. But is there a reason not to start with base metal clays, just because historically silver clay was there first?

On the right side of the screen, with the Articles and Tutorials, you will find a project that can be made with just copper clay, or with a combination of the three clays. It’s called “Cinnamon Stick Earrings”, and is open to many interpretations. I hope it helps you get started.
