Spotlight On: Polymer Clay Jewelry

As crafters we usually like to find items to use that have more than one use. Versatility is always inspirational in adding imagination and creating. Well, you won’t find too many products that are as versatile as polymer clay.

Many styles of jewelry can be created with just a little clay and your imagination. From elegant like this wire wrap set.
