Member Benefits 040-3: Jewelry & Projects

Polymer Clay Membership SiteI love the things you teach. I’m learning so much and I get comments from so many people about the jewelry I make. THANK YOU. ~Sandra-G >> This comment was originally posted here: Hammered Metal Bezels for Polymer Jewelry

Cindy, you must be a mind reader.  I have been making golf stroke counters and I can never decide what to end the bottoms of the cords with. I like putting little beads or dangles on them on the wire cord ends would be perfect. I use shoelaces to make my cords but then cut off the plastic ends and there are no wire cord ends that fit on them. The ones you made in the short video look awesome.  You are a genius besides being a mind reader. ~Bonnie-K >> This comment was originally posted here: Cord End Findings

Cindy – I anxiously wait for Fridays to come, to see what new wonderful video tutorials you have waiting for us. Each week you amaze me with something completely new and challenging. I have really enjoyed your tutorials on tribal canes and beads. I just can’t say thanks enough to you Cindy for your wonderful style of teaching us this craft. Thanks again. ~Nancy-R >> This comment was originally posted here: Tribal Cane Jewelry Projects

I seriously love that I idea. I loved that idea so much that yesterday I made two necklaces with hooks on either side using black satin rat tail… the hooks on one of them looks a lot your hooks. Wow! I was amazed at the number of pendants I had already that would work with it. Such a versatile little necklace. I say… Fabulous!!! You are the PC Guru and my buddha! ~Melinda-H >> This comment was originally posted here: Jewelry Hooks

The thing I love most about polymer clay, is that I can make truly unique pieces. Anyone can buy beads in bulk and re-string them into jewelry, but I find satisfaction in knowing that I made each and every bead in a piece. ~Carrie-W >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Jewelry

Love it!! Please show us the chain at some point. I would love to see the complete piece. As far as continuing to demonstrate different ways to use beads, canes etc., those among us who are design challenged (namely, me lol) really benefit from your taking what you teach us one step further. As always, thank you for what you do. ~Elizabeth-S >> This comment was originally posted here: Wiring Polymer Clay Beads

Oooo. This is wonderful! What a perfect thing to show all your beads not used in other projects. I have a LOT of those. 8) Kudos and thanks for this. ~Michelle-S >> This comment was originally posted here: Interchangeable Pendant

Oh, oh, oh, I am sooooo excited!! I finally did it. I made a couple canes. They weren’t this one but one is a flower petal and the other is a leaf. The flower petal came out different than the picture on the instructions but still pretty. The leaf one came out totally like it should. I am soooo proud. Finally, finally. And you all are so right. They are so fun. Now I have these little canes I can make all kinds of things with. I made a really cool pendant already. Yea!! ~Laurel-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Cane Jewelry

My polymer to do list is getting longer and longer. YAH! Thanks to you and our clay family here at the blog. ~Joyce-M >> This comment was originally posted here: Silverspoon Polymer Clay Jewelry

I Love This!!! It’s so unique, so interesting… I’m inspired by the purse charms and I wish the picture was even more closeup/detailed. Will you be doing a vid on this Cindy? I would be delighted to see how it’s all put together. Cindy – you never cease to amaze me! Thanks for the inspiration – I think I’ll be working on some new beads today. ~Lisa-W >> This comment was originally posted here: Purse Charms

Now I know why I went around my yard and gathered bird feathers when my great community of birds were molting. I have a whole big coffee can full! Now I can make use of them. ~Carolyn-F >> This comment was originally posted here: Feather Tassels Wire Cord Ends

Posted my pictures of watercolour beads on Facebook. I’ve just logged back in to find a message from a guy I went to school with asking if I sell jewellery as his daughter saw my necklace and wants a bracelet! Yay Cindy, you got me a sale! :) *does a happy dance* ~Silverleaf … A Follow up Comment From Silverleaf: I am pleased with the way my beads turned out, especially as the technique is one I haven’t tried before. Oh and I had another couple of messages from people asking where they can buy my jewellery and if I do commissioned work. :) Yay! I never thought of getting sales through Facebook. Maybe it’s worth a try for anyone else who wants to sell as well. ~Silverleaf >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Jewelry Sales

Before I read a word about your beads I said to myself what a beauty looks just like a picture taken out of a scenic view magazine. Love the beads Cindy. Do you have a hard time giving away or selling the really neat beads like these. I would instantly want to make something for myself out of those beads. Capturing art in your leftover polymer clay. You just don’t know when that next bead will turn up. BAM, you just did it Cindy. ~Peggy-B >> This comment was originally posted here: Handmade Polymer Clay Beads

Thanks Cindy! I can now have my Friday fix.. LOVED the ear wire video. ~Stephanie-B >> This comment was originally posted here: How to Make Handmade Ear Wires

I love this format…it’s great to be able to see more detail in each of the pieces. I always look forward to the personal touches added too, and how  lessons are combined, like the tribal cane and heart on your purse charm Carolyn. It’s amazing how many unique combinations can be created with the same lessons. Thanks ladies for the inspiration, these are wonderful! ~DJ >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Project

Just want to brag a minute. I made a necklace from a piece of my faux crackled raku (forgot to take a pic) and donated it to our Salvation Army silent auction. It was just the rectangle of raku with a little black bead and a little silver bead on top with a black satin cord. It went for $75.00. I was thrilled. The most I’ve sold a necklace for is $35.00 and that’s the price I put on this one. They always list the value of the items in the auction. Every time I looked where the piece was on the table, someone was touching it. Thanks to Cindy!! ~Freda-K >> This comment was originally posted here: Polymer Clay Jewelry

I love the button tut, Cindy. I make knitted purses out of batik cotton, and I usually buy very large buttons as closures. How fun to be able to make any size I need and to coordinate them with the purse. Thanks for sharing your talents. ~Loretta-C >> This comment was originally posted here: Making Your Own Custom Buttons

Definitely, Cindy, as DJ and others suggest, this would be a great tutorial. The lanyard with a thousand uses – and incidentally happens to be gorgeous, to boot! Original too; I’ve never seen one like yours, they’re all very utilitarian. You’re so clever, and a seeker (and finder) of beauty too. Thank you. ~Mary-U >> This comment was originally posted here: Beaded Lanyards

I was cleaning my silverware drawer this morning and what did I come across. My sons silver baby spoon (now 22 years old)! What a great thing to do with it! My other children had the silver baby spoons also. I can make them each a piece of jewelry with their baby spoons!! ~Maureen-G >> This comment was originally posted here: Silver Spoon Jewelry

I love the Jade Tut. I made a necklace and wore it to the jewelers and got a complement. The jeweler said it was a stunning piece :)  I never thought of using different colors other than the green. Thanks. ~Brenda-M >> This comment was originally posted here: Multi-Colored Faux Jade Technique
