Irina Vasilieva: EZ960™ Sterling Ring & Earrings


We are continuing to receive beautiful photos from artists using EZ960® Sterling.  Irina Vasilieva, metal clay artist from Russia created this beautiful ring and earring set. The earrings were fired at 1724°F/940°C for 15 minutes and the ring was fired at 1700°F/927°C for 1 hour. The stone is a crystal of the polychrome tourmaline – 8mm in length.

EZ960 is a great, all purpose metal clay with excellent working properties. Because the clay is a sterling silver alloy, one of its best attributes is its post firing strength, in comparison to fine silver. This inherent strength makes EZ960 the perfect choice for jewelry that takes lots of abuse, such as rings and bracelets. For more information on this product, download the EZ960 Sterling Instruction and Firing Guide.
