That day I was just finished an animal figure and ready to take a break, and suddenly saw a pic of vintage necklace with figure carved in low relief, the idea just appeared in my mind. Why can't I use polymer clay to copy the maste painting in to necklace, but 20 minutes later, I find out that impossibel for me to do it...(Im reading the art of polymer clay, I guess it has some affect on me)

So, I give up the painting idea and decided to use the base to creat some polymer clay faux gem.

Starry night Necklace

I mixed some translucent clay with green clay

I love the green marbled "stones"

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

The translucent one looks so much like jade! Very pretty!

Really good looking faux jade cabochons!, and like the metal cabochon setting you used behind too.

(If you're interested in making more variations on faux jade or making other kinds of faux precious stones and other materials from polymer clay, you might have fun checking out these pages at my site too:
