Making jewelry - a new endeavour

Since making the star ornaments as Christmas presents, I have been working with sculpted design in polymer clay. I found that it lends itself beautifully to jewelry design.
I have made several pendants that have my original designs impressed into them. I have developed some techniques on my own for this branching off from ideas that I have read in books and/or online.

Here are some samples:

These are wonderful gene! What color clay and paint did you use? They really look great!

Gene Black said...

I used black clay sometimes mixed with gold clay or silver clay. The only paint is either metallic gold powder or golden acrylics (in iridescent bronze, black and iridescent silver)

Gene - these are just SOCOOL! I was considering buying the bronzed pendant, but found I'd been beaten to it!! :)
