Earrings with Your Own Design
This course is for the person who has no or little metal clay experience. You could enroll first in "Your First Metal Clay Experience," which is a Freebie here at I Love Silver. Or you could head right into this course on how to make these lovely dangling earrings.
This course has one 18-minute video that you can access at any time. You can start and stop it at any point.
This course also contains many links for more information on particular steps in this project's simple process.
Here too is a link to Kris' website Links and Resources page, with online metal clay suppliers and further educational sites.
Kris designs and makes fine and sterling silver, minuscule sculptures, pendants, earrings, charms, and rings. Her work features landscapes, wildlife, and tracks. Her main medium is precious metal clay.
Kris is a PMC Certification Instructor certified by PMC Connection (not longer in existence) and Rio-Rewards Certified by RioGrande.
In 2012 Kris “passed with distinction the certification review” by the Montana Arts Council, signaling that she has developed a sustainable business in art. The additional honor of distinction was awarded based on a demonstrated depth of understanding of her art and the development of a strong brand suited for her specific business niche.
Kris is currently teaching, maintaining her silver business, and working on submissions to the Metal Clay Masters Registry. She achieved Level 1 in 2017, Level 2 in 2018, and is listed as a Master in Masters Registry.

Frequently Asked Questions
Once you've taken an online course from me, you will have access to my email and website. You may ask any questions via email during or after the course. I will answer your questions or refer you to a resource where you can gather information.
On my website, I post on "PMC Tidbits & Tricks" once a month. These are free snippets of knowledge that go well with these courses.
Many folks who take a basics course in PMC continue to improve their skills and make silver jewelry. More than one of my "students" from in-person classes and/or in-studio instruction have gone on to sell their creations. We support and learn from each other. It's great community!
