Polymer Clay Faux Dichroic Jewelry

Polymer Clay Faux Dichroic Jewelry

I’ve been busy creating some colorful
Faux Dichroic jewelry for my Etsy Shop.

I always wanted to work with real dichroic glass, but this is the next best thing! I use a nice thick coat of Enviro tex lite resin
to bring my faux dichroic glass creations to life.

Earrings are my favorite piece of jewelry to create! I love color coordinating  them with different outfits. It’s the perfect way to add a splash of color and pizzazz to your style. My Etsy Shop is full of unique Wearable Art jewelry.I hope you enjoy making these earrings, add your own spin on them, try them in sparkly gold or silver! Happy crafting!

STEP ONE:  Condition a segment of Bronze Premo! clay, roll out on the #2 setting of your pasta machine. Cut out 2 circles with a 1″ cutter.

STEP TWO:  Form each circle into a tube bead shape. Roll until smooth.

STEP THREE:  Roll each tube bead over the texture sheet

STEP FOUR:  Use the bead piercing tool to incise lines & dots on bead. Make a hole horizontally through the top part of the bead. Bake clay beads as per package directions.

STEP FIVE: Making the marbled flower bead.  Condition a segment of Bronze and one of Copper. Marble the colors together, roll out on #1. Cut 4 flower shapes (use 2 flowers to make 1 bead), using the Flower cutter tool.

STEP SIX:  Stamp the bead with a small flower stamp. Make a vertical bead hole through the flower bead. Bake as directed on clay package. 


 

STEP SEVEN: Distress the beads with acrylic paints. Brush on, wipe off excess

Polymer Clay Faux Dichroic

My latest experiments involve the use of some scraps leftover from other projects. I carefully save the little bits between layers of wax paper, and store them in plastic file drawers. Last weekend I decided it was due time to find out what was lurking in those secret drawers. What I discovered was a scrap pile consisting mostly of my favorite colors, purple, lavender, turquiose, & various blue-green shades. Here are the results of my weekend foraging:)

Most of these pendants are available in my Etsy ShopBeadazzle Me
