Polymer Clay Jewelry

I know I haven't posted much this year but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy making new things! I've just been too busy I guess. Add in baby #4 and well, the blog takes a backseat.

This summer I decided I wanted to try stamping with polymer clay. I've never worked with polymer clay before so I spent a month just reading & figuring out what supplies to buy. Somehow I stumbled upon an ArtBliss jewelry/crafter meetup group and learned there's an ArtBliss jewelry workshop near Dulles twice a year. It was my good luck that the one in September offered a class in stamped polymer clay jewelry! AND I took a class on how to photograph my jewelry (better). You can let me know if you see any improvement :-)

I'm really excited about the possibilities this new medium offers. Here are some of the pieces I've made thus far: 

I used some spiral earrings to stamp into this pendant.

I made a mold from a really pretty button to make this pendant.

Used a good old acrylic stamp here.
