These are all destined to be pendants. When they are reborn into necklaces, I'll add a link here to their post on the Jewelry forum. For now, though:

Half-assed faux jade. I can do better, but didn't feel like it ... lol. :


Metallic Blue:


Metallic blue and coppery-gold:


Metallic red:


Translucent w/ tiny bit of red and TONS of red glitter:


Someone told me this one looks like porcelain. I kind of agree.


THis is one of the very first ones I made. It was black clay brushed with silver mica powder. Then drilled and added to a chain w/ swarovski crystals and faux black pearls. (The others are meant for a similar fate.)


This was just for fun. It's translucent mixed with a tiny bit of green clay, tons of glow-in-the-dark glitter, and some glow clay. I may turn it into a hairpin.





And some swirly lentil beads! These were kind of practice. I have Fimo, SculpeyIII, Premo, and Kato. So, I've been experimenting to see which clay makes these beads the best.

Those are so beautiful, i love 'em. I like making the swirly lentil beads but i'm always worried about trying to put holes in them before baking. So i have a little stash with no holes. lol

great job!

I do too ... LoL. If you use a stiffer clay, like Kato, it's easier to put holes. Or, stick your needle tool and your beads in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes on a glass or tile work surface (keeps the beads cool while you're working with them). Poke your hole on one side until you get to the center, then poke on the other side until it goes through. Practice on plain lentil beads so that you don't waste all your glittery swirly goodness if you mess up at first.

WOW those Roses are so pretty!!  Cheesy
Your lentils look very very good too!
I have dabbled with polyclay almost 4 yrs now, and by far my fav brand for canes and beads is Kato.  YES it is harder to condition!  But the color stays true! and finish is wonderful even if you did not want to "glaze" them!   And no they are not paying me to say that!   Tongue
I am sure other poly clayers prefer other brands.  My daughter sculpts polyclay and she prefers the softer brands like Fimo and Premo.

I loooove Kato. You're right, it's stiffer, but that is not always a bad thing. I prefer it to other brands for sculpting because I can't accidentlly bend a nose the wrong way. I have to want it to. I usually end up using a 75/25 mix of Kato and Premo! for flesh colored sculptures. Anyway, I use all the major brands because some qualities are better for certain projects, y'know?

Honestly, I always just use craft glitter that I bought at Joanne's. It came in a package of a bunch of vials. Pretty cheap and I've never had it scorch. I also use cosmetic glitter ... you know, the kind that come in muti-colored stacks at Claire's and other places like that. I've only had a scorching incident once and it had more to do with me accidentally leaving it in too long. Plus, that time I have put the glitter on the surface.
