My First Metal Clay Video

Yesterday I spent a few hours at a studio of a friend of mine, Sue of Purr-fectly Unique Jewelry, shooting my first jewelry lesson video.  Sue and her son have just started a jewelry lesson website, and asked me to do a tutorial on metal clay.

For the first one, I decided to do a very easy beginner project:  a simple stamped pendant in silver metal clay.  This doesn't require any experience.  (It does, however, require a kiln.)

Here is Christopher setting up the lights.

Here I am getting ready to do the introduction (under the hot lights!):

When the video is finished, there will be a trailer, which I will share here on my blog.  In the meantime, you can check out the site at


  1. Congratulations Roxanne, I look forward to seeing the video.
    Checked out the Lesson site and while it looks like it has only just started up I think it will be a great resource when they have more content. Thanks for the link.

  2. How awesome!! So looking forward to seeing the tutorial video. I find metal clay fascinating. Love the behind the scenes photos too. :)

  3. Wonderful post and looking forward to seeing the video. It is nice to see the behind the scenes photos too. I find metal clay fascinating and yes, can't wait to see the video!

  4. Great idea, Roxanne! I have seen others of our Artfire artisan friends who have really increased their sales by posting videos on their websites or on YouTube, especially the tutorial videos. I wish you huge success in this new effort.

  5. I look forward to watching your video, too! Sounds like you have a good partnership going with your friend. I wish you all success as you start this video series!

  6. Thanks everyone! When the site gets going, it is going to sell downloads, although I think there will be some free ones also. I know there are some free ones right now.

  7. Wonderful, Roxanne. With all the beautiful PMC pendants in your studio, you are the perfect person to do the video. As others expressed, I look forward to seeing it. Have dabbled a bit in PMC and find it very gratifying. Maybe one of these days I'll buy a kiln and do a bit more than dabble (: Hope you keep us posted.

  8. Sounds like fun! Can't wait to see the video :-)

  9. A star is born! this a a great opportunity for you. You can concentrate on presenting a clear instructional tutorial and someone else will worry about the video production aspects.

    1. Isn't that the truth! Once for a contest I had to make some video introduction thing. Talk about a pain!

  10. I can't wait to see the video!
