Faux Stone Jewelry from Polymer Clay

This weeks Earth Day craft is surprisingly easy to make. I kid you not, you can create this look with a few simple ingredients in about an hour! I found some beautiful real stone jewelry on Etsy, by Stone Alone and wondered if the look could be re-created with polymer clay. I googled, “how to create […]

Very clever, thanks for heads up on tutorials for making stones with clay. Looks like you did a great job making the stones, they look fantastic.
Great job and how nice of you to give your Mom the first successfully completed bracelet.
A few years ago I had a silver bracelet with turquoise (faux) from Mexico. One of the stones came out so I thought – hmmm, why couldn’t I make a faux stone and I did. Nobody has ever guessed it’s not real turquoise. Love it when things work out, Don’t tell anybody you made the stones, How nice to have a beach close by to get stones to refer to. Lucky gal. Happy Easter

I went to linked tutorial, excellent, wonderful tips for making life like pebbles. If I wasn’t almost out of ink I’d have printed it out but did save it. Makes me want to get my clay stuff out again, make some of these for bracelets, necklaces, earrings. I was going to get rid of all my clay stuff as haven’t used it in years but rethinking that. Glad I found your post, great one. Will come back to watch your tutorial video.

I’ve never tried polymer clay. You made it look so fun and easy. But then again you do that with all of your videos. I will be picking up some clay on my next trip to the craft store.

I love to watch you in action!! Luv your projects and videos. Thank you so much!

Some fun April DIY ideas with our Thursday Round UP!

Spring really is about seeing things transform right before our eyes.  Check out this first project that transforms a basic composition notebook into a truly personalize journal.  Cathy Attix demonstrates how she used stamping and painting to make the journals super special. http://www.trinketsinbloom.com/diy-journals/ Even if the weather is not quite right for hanging outdoors yet, […]
