Polymer Clay Membership SiteI love the idea of the baby necklace, I used to work in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and know many nurses who would love to have one made for the parents of their little patients. ~Katina-K >> Original comment was posted here: Photo Transfer Bead Project Baby Keepsake Necklace

I love how the foil tape finishes the whole look. I love working with copper so this will add to my finished pieces and link it with the copper wirework. Cindy, I finally put some things up for sale and sold four pairs of earrings last week. And have orders for several more pair. I am so happy. I could not have ever had the assurance that they were good enough without your tutorials. I have been wanting to sell some of them for awhile but could not think that my minor attempts at making something they would like would be worthwhile. ~Karonkay-C >> Original comment was posted here: Pendants Wrapped with Copper Foil

Yup… another “AHA! Now why didn’t I think of that?” moment for me! I thought about bending the wires to the side, but didn’t think that would be sturdy enough, so I wasn’t satisfied enough to attempt it. Cindy, you’ve done it again! Absolutely loved the colors of the beads in the bracelet you showed and that silvery/pearly/mauvey/pinkish heart! Everything else, too, of course. I always do. Great job on video as always Doug! Where else can we get so much for so little? A great BIG thank you to both of you for another job well done. There’s so much here that we can all take away from this and use – my wheels are spinning and I haven’t even finished my first cup of coffee! Have a great weekend guys! ~Tanya-L >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Library

Thanks for your tuts, I enjoy them more than you will know. I’ve made some stunning items, which I need to photograph, and then share. ~Lorraine-C >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Video Library

Don’t you love using wire with PC? A match made in heaven. Scraps just crying out – use me, use me!!! And now I will be able to – what a great idea!!! Don’t know how you do it, but your brain must be on speed time. LOL ~Patt-W >> Original comment was posted here: Embedded Leaf Vein Hammered Wire Bail

I’m so glad this tutorial is coming up next month. If I wasn’t already a member, I would be joining up now so that I could get the tutorial at the great member price! This is going to be exciting! Just looking at all the things you can do with this spoon jewelry technique has got the inspiration gears a-turnin’! ~Phaedrakat >> Original comment was posted here: How to Make Polymer Clay Pendants with a Silver Spoon

Hi Cindy – I just purchased your Vol-003 Back Issue to get the Rose Petal Inclusion video, and also found the Vol-034-1 Rose Petal Beads video. Love your site – I am starting a business where I preserve flowers and put them in shadow box displays and really want to add this as another option for brides or memorial customers. Have never made any jewelry before so your site is a lifesaver! Going to get your polymer clay basics course too :) Thanks! ~Heather-S >> Original comment was posted here: How to Make Rose Petal Beads from Polymer Clay and Dried Flowers

I sold two more snowmen and 2 Christmas spiders. The spiders came out great. The only thing I changed was that I used 20 gauge wire for the body… it made it a little stronger. My neighbor who bought them, just loves them. I gave her three different spider stories that I found on the web… she greatly appreciated that special little touch. She wants me to make dinosaur ornaments and other animals for next Christmas. Things to work on during the year. Thanks  for all these great ideas. ~Natalie-H >> Original comment was posted here: Learning About Polymer Clay Color Mixing

This is that beautiful bead that caused me to gasp. Unbelievable! I have to come back later and reread this. ~Marianne-H >> Original comment was posted here: Flower Beads for Jewelry Making

Really love the shape and the texturizing on the beads. This technique will come in handy. Thanks. ~Adrienne-L >> Original comment was posted here: Faux Fossil Shell Beads

Cindy: You make everything look so simple… I would have never known to bend the end that way so it would hook easier. ~Brenda-M >> Original comment was posted here: Copper Bangle Video Tutorial

This is so pretty, I love the colors and the resin really  compliments the faux opal. What a great idea to use the guitar string… kind of romantic to think beautiful music once came from the materials used! ~DJ >> Original comment was posted here: Faux Opal Metal Bezel Mounted on Guitar String

How fun to see my pendant featured in this months member projects. I loved this tutorial and it’s perfect for this year fashion trends! Lots of animals prints are being featured in the stores. Because of Cindy and Doug we’ll all be displaying our “wild side” In style! ~Jeanne-C >> Original comment was posted here: Leopard Cane Animal Print Jewelry

Love this tute!!! I need some dangle earrings and this would be perfect with the feather cane….. wow! ~Pollyanna >> Original comment was posted here: Cane Slice Pod Beads Video

I’m baking cheesecakes and SHOULD be cleaning the house for the arrival of the Christmas throngs, but my workroom and the polymer clay is calling me…. man, I’m addicted! I DREAM about what I’ll try next! Made a whole bunch of ‘spoon bail’ necklaces the other day and I love them. Thanks again, Cindy, and everyone else for all your help – love reading your posts! ~Isabel-H >> Original comment was posted here: Happy Polymer Clay Holidays

These are so cute!! They will make great buttons or cute earrings or bracelet for little girls. Not to mention all the ladies that are into the cute country look. There are a bunch that I work with that would love these. Can’t wait to learn another technique. That lentil bead is modern country, LOL!! ~Laura-Z >> Original comment was posted here: Gingham Cane Extruder Project

I think this is just what I’ve been waiting for… I’m going to use this technique and make a bail…. I’ll let you all know how it turns out. ~Kathy-G >> Original comment was posted here: Faux Knit Technique

Ooooooo, we finally get to learn how to do this, I just recently tried a bangle bracelet project I found while reading on another site, it came out reasonably well and I have a few ideas on how to improve on it, but THIS is the bracelet tutorial I’ve been waiting for. ~Ken-H >> Original comment was posted here: Hammered Metal Bracelet Blanks

Oh, these are very pretty indeed.  Would make any number of lovely spring items to wear from necklaces and pendants to bracelets and rings, as you show here. Thanks, Cindy! ~Becky-C >> Original comment was posted here: Lilac Blossom Flower Beads

What a great idea! I really like making the headpins and this looks like such an excellent way to use them. ~Fran-R >> Original comment was posted here: Mixed Media Wire Leaf Charms Polymer Clay Tutorial

I just delivered a special order of two purple bracelets. Of course I had to make four so she’d have a choice. I started with a purple more like the dark purple at the center of the flower. On one of them I took the first purple and made torn watercolor paper beads that turned out to be a pinky-purple more like the 3-A shade. ~Freda-K >> Original comment was posted here: Polymer Clay Color Recipes

Beautiful earrings! Looks like a Cathedral stained glass window. I made two pairs of earrings using the blend and switch technique and also used resin. One of them is a kind of skateboard shape and the other is not exactly but very much like this one. ~Cherie-H >> Original comment was posted here: Mosaico Earrings Polymer Clay Blend & Switch Technique
