Polymer Clay on Glass Candleholder

I used a translucent Fimo to cover the glass, and then a paper punch to cut out Fimo leaves to make this. You can the leaves here. These leaves could be used for making jewelry too.

Foil on Polymer Clay Pendants

I used red variegated foil to make these pendants. It's the first time I've tested that product. I spread the foil onto a clay slab (it sticks easily) and then put the clay through the roller at a smaller setting to cause the crackle. And then I cut out the pendants by placing a plastic bag over the clay, and cutting. I do that so that the edges will be rounded.

More polymer clay candy

Again, I made a mold using Amazing Mold Putty, and used that for making the clay candy. I'm working on a necklace with the candy as well.

Polymer Clay Candy

I used Amazing Mold Putty to make molds of candy and baked polymer clay right in the molds. I might make some for jewelry but had fun just making a display. Looks edible, no calories, but rather tempting.

Polymer Clay Swirled Heart Jewelry

I've been still making hearts and these are some experiments doing swirls for the hearts. I'm still enjoying that process.

More Valentine's Hearts

Hard to show the crystals on these in this photo, but these are more experiments for decorating my Valentine's trees, which I then use for making jewelry. I made a mold to press stamp the outside ones and in the center is my experiment in cutting tiny clay hearts with a paper punch and putting them onto clay, then rolling out the clay to make it smooth. I used Pearl-Ex powders on them all, plus a rub-on metallic paste to highlight designs. The big heart lower left I used eye shadow rather than Pearl-Ex to get the muted effect, but I prefer the Pearl-Ex, so I still highlighted that one with a rub-on metallic paste. Naturally, I'm using all of these techniques to make pendants for jewelry as well.

Valentine Pendants

I made these Fimo pendants using a red effects clay, and stamped them. Then I brushed pearl-white Pearl-Ex onto the tops. Very easy to make!
