Tutorial: How to Create Polymer Clay Faux Glass Beads

I just released my first Tutorial! How-to Create Polymer Clay
Faux Glass Beads. It’s available in my Etsy Shop Beadazzle Me.
I sold my first copy just an hour after listing it on Etsy!
I love sharing my techniques & ideas. This tutorial
is a complete step-by-step guide, with 20 full-color photos,
of  how to achieve your own, unique, hand-crafted beads!
You’ll be amazed by how Glass-like they appear!
It’s so much Fun, you won’t be able to stop at just
one, it’s addicting! Make your own shimmery bracelet, Earrings,
or maybe a simple drop pendant. Happy Crafting:)

Polymer Clay Pendant

This is one of my pendants that was published in the book “Polymer Artists Showcase”  The front of the pendant is a gradation of cinnamon/russet colors, with black lines & dots to complete the composition. The back is a Mica Shift pattern done in a pearlized gold color. The bail at the top is actually a steel bead that I inserted with a wire into the top of the pendant to hold it securely, I like using odd & unexpected things for bails, I am a great collector of odds & ends, that I just know someday I might use in one of my creations. Maybe that makes me a hoarder of sorts? Well, I guess if you looked inside my craft closet you would see I’m not much of an organizer:( but, I know exactly where things are in my hodgepodge, jumbled up craft closet.  Just ask me for a purple flat-backed rhinestone, & with a little digging, well maybe a lot, I’m sure to find one!!

Polymer Artists Showcase includes popular well known polymer artists as well as never before published artists. Polymer art photos were collected from contributing artists from all over the globe. This photo book is an eclectic mix of jewelry, sculpture and various polymer art. An inspiring resource. Full color photos include artists name, flickr name and website (if available). A great gift for any polymer enthusiast.
