Welcome to Liz Reynolds Studio store
All of Liz Reynolds Studio jewelry is hand made in my Toronto, Canada studio.
My primary fabrication material is Metal Clay.
So, what is Metal Clay?
Powder metallurgy is the simple answer, and as an industrial metal forming process, it’s been around for nearly a century. It only became a jewelry fabrication option around1990.
The combination of atomized particles of metal - silver, gold, bronze, copper, steel - with an organic binder and water, creates a form of malleable metal, or what is known today as metal clay, even though that name is a bit misleading as there is no clay at all. In creating jewelry it allows for a wide variety of processes. Techniques familiar to metalworking combine with pottery hand-building methods, and then through heat and time, the work is transformed into a variety solid metals.
