Disclaimer: I'm CRAP with polymer clay. But I enjoy playing with it anyway. Smiley

I was looking at all the nifty projects made from polymer canes and finally decided I had to try it. So I dragged out the box of fimo and started rolling. This was about the time my hubby gave me a sidelong glance and asked, "Are you sure you know what you're doing?" Well. I couldn't lie to the man. So I told him the truth: Nope. Smiley After a couple of minutes of silence-and rolling-he sort of shifted in his seat and said, "Well, um, don't you think that's an awful lot of fimo to waste if it goes wrong?" That's when I pulled out my how-dare-you-question-my-crafting-abilities stare.

To be honest, I was uber nervous myself...But when I showed him the finished project my hubby grinned and sort of giggled. He pronounced it "Not bad at all." That alone is enough for me to count it as a sucess! Smiley Anywho...Since it's too late to make a long story short...My first attempt at a polymer cane!  (Oh, and two earrings I just had to make to go with it.)



The necklace fits perfectly on my collarbone which makes me happy. Smiley





And here's the roll, cut into pieces. Should've taken one as I was working but I never expected it to work.



You probably can't see it but the red and the darker green have glitter in them. Comments and suggestions would be very helpful!  Grin

I've never worked with polymer so I'm no expert but I sure admire people who do work with it.  I think your necklace looks great and I would wear it (especially to work as it would be a great conversation starter)
