inlaying polymer clay in a silver setting and then curing
(hardening it in the oven) it in place ?
Of course this is possible. Lots of people do this with polymer
clay and Precious Metal Clay. While we're on the subject, for best
results, bake your polymer in a convection oven, preferably a
dedicated one that you don't cook food in. If you cook food in the
same oven, you should clean your oven after the polymer before you
go back to food.
I think you'd want to glue the polymer in though. Hmm. Mabye if
you put Transparent Liquid Sculpey in the bottom of your silver
piece, put the raw polymer on top, then fire. (TLS works as a glue
to attach polymer to polymer, I don't know if it works for polymer
