Summer Jewelry Trends: Polymer Clay & Seashells

Summer Jewelry Trends: Polymer Clay & Seashells

Summer breezes, salt water, sand, & Seashells! One of my favorite hobbies is collecting unusual
shells from our gorgeous Florida beaches. I love incorporating my finds into my polymer clay
jewelry.

The most difficult shells to find are the orange scallop shells, the tinier the better. Nature creates such stunning colors. The background of this photo was taken on Sarasota Bay.

This bracelet contains a mix of small scallop shells, Cat’s Paws, Orange Jingle shells.

How to: Faux Hidden Magic Tutorial

Polymer Clay Faux Hidden Magic

Free Cuff Bracelet Tutorial

Here is my simplified version of the Hidden Magic technique. It’s quick & easy & the results are comparable to real thing, if I do say so myself-lol! I’m an impatient person, if I get an idea I like to see the finished product ASAP!
I used Premo Clay for this demo, the colors are vibrant & it retains a nice flexibility after baking.The cane I used for this bracelet was an older one, so after I ran the slice through the pasta machine on #2, I added a very thin sheet of translucent on top, to hold it all together. Then, the thin black & white sheets over that. Run the whole concoction through on #3, and then black side down on your stamp on #1. Wha-La !

Polymer Clay “Art Immitates Life”

Polymer Clay Faux Geode Bracelet

The Faux Geode bracelet is made with a cane similar to the one I used in the Faux Geode necklace (shown in an earlier post). I used Fimo translucent clay with a tint of Premo purple & violet. The bracelet is strung on purple jewelry wire, I also added charcoal colored glass accent beads. I  enjoy making  these unusual pieces,  I never sell them,  I just keep adding to my collection that I display in my craft studio.
