My Other Hobby

I thought I would share my other hobby with you. Jewelry making. I make one of a kind jewelry with polymer clay. Polymer clay is also great for accent pieces in card making and other craft projects. Polymer clay is very easy to use and can be bought at any big name craft store.The clay can be formed in any shape you wish. There are all kinds of tools and cookie cutter shapes you can use to cut out shapes. You can also use  stamps to add design and texture to the pieces. You can also use Pearl EX to add glittery accents to you clay before you bake it. It is usualy baked at 275 degrees in your oven or toaster oven. One warning, do not use tools or cooking pans that you use with food products. Here are a few examples of what I have done. This first picture is stuff that I have not baked yet and is incomplete.
If you look at the picture above you will see 3 pieces of jewelry that have pictures. This is a really cool technique of using laser print images on the clay.
The swirl is a signature design clasp that I put on most of my necklaces.
