Adventures in Poly Clay

During a recent art retreat here at my house with my friends Diana and Nona, we experimented with polymer clay. It was a LOT of fun!

Here are some charms I made using a clear floral gem with an image behind it, with stamped clay made into a surround:

These are simple charms stamped with texture and brushed with PearlEx for shimmer:

Nona made some faux ivory clay and shared a bit, so I experimented with these beads and dangles.

And I made some faux wood and cast them in molds to create these:

The rest of these are cast in molds I made using silicone mold putty and some buttons and old jewelry pieces:

Now to get some jewelry made with these and the resin charms we made the last time we were together!
