Sil­ver suc­cess

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - ABOUT TOWN -

Lo­cated in the M50 cre­ative zone in Pu­tuo dis­trict, One Piece (Room 105, Blgd 8, 50 Mo­gan­shan Road, 3360-2995) lets you make your own sil­ver jew­elry, such as rings, neck­laces and bracelets.

There are three big ta­bles in the stu­dio, each with a pro­fes­sional teacher who will guide you through the process step by step, from the de­sign to the fi­nal piece.

Cus­tomers first get a packet of sil­ver clay, which is grey and soft. Lu Wen­wen, a teacher at the stu­dio, told the Global Times that the sil­ver clay is 80 per­cent sil­ver pow­der.

“We use this ma­te­rial be­cause it is very easy to en­grave, and thus suit­able for learn­ers,” Lu said.

Af­ter shap­ing the clay, the piece is fired twice in an oven at 150 C. Once cooled, cus­tomers can en­grave pat­terns on it be­fore it is heated again at 890 C.

Fi­nally, the piece is pol­ished by staff.

The DIY set can be booked on­line for 199 yuan.
