Kiln Jewels can be used with Precious Metal Clay and any other clay body. Kiln Jewels are special gems that range in size from less than one centimeter to two centimeters. They are made from ceramic glaze materials and have been fired to 2350 degrees Fahrenheit (cone 10) so there is no cracking from being reheated in the kiln. The Kiln Jewels have an effervescent look which often times changes after a firing.
Candice Kiesow of Denver fired her ring using the following schedule:
"I used PMC3 and fired them at 1110 degrees for 30 minutes, and let the kiln cool all the way down without peeking. The colors totally held. Those I've showed the pieces to loved the colors."
