PMC is Precious Metal Clay. This material was created by the Mitsubishi Corporation in the early 1990s as a way to recover silver, gold, and platinum from old computers, medical instruments and photography supplies. A method was developed that allowed the combination of precious metals into a type of clay that could be used to make jewelry and other products.
It's nice to know that PMC is made with sustainable/recycled materials. I am even able to use the leftover clay and “mistakes” again by re-constituting the clay and creating a new product.

I'm adding a few new designs to my PMC pendant collection: Mahatma Gandhi's quote, "Be the Change"/"harmony" with lotus flower/tiny om pendants/"moksha" (sanskrit word for freedom) with om symbol/"ananda" (sanskrit word for bliss) with lotus flower. Some other best-sellers I'm including are the "namaste" ring pendant, Ganesh pendant and om symbol pendants.
All of these will be for sale soon (after they're fired in the kiln and polished) in my online shop, Moondog Treasures.
