Diane B. thanks so much! I plan on using the info to experiment and see what I find works for the look I want.

In the book I mentioned the author used semi-precious stones like turquoise, plus colored glass, and faux pearls, etc. She "sets" the stones into the pc and designs a bezel of polymer clay around them before they are baked. What type of pearls would work for this? Would real freshwater pearls stand the heat? What about less expensive acrylic pearls and acrylic faux gemstones? I might try making some faux turquoise to use, but I also would like to use some rhinestones and pearls, etc.

What is the best way to get the look of old gold when making jewelry out of polymer clay? In the book, Creating Your Own Antique Jewelry, Taking Inspiration from Great Museums Around the World by Cris Dupouy, black clay is recommended which is baked and then painted with "jars of model paint." I'm wondering about this because I read that some oil based paints react to polymer clay. I'm new to clay and would appreciate any info. Here's a link to the book on Amazon.com/:

I would really love to host a small craft group!

Would anyone be interested? Please reply here or PM me!

I live almost right in the middle of Atlanta with easy access from 3 major interstates. I have two roommates, but we have a good deal of space. Would be really excited to have some crafty folks over Smiley
