11  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / Polymer Clay and Magnets on: November 13, 2011 10:18:51 PM
Hey all.. I tried searching the internet but couldn't really find any info on what I was looking for.

I want to make some magnets as gifts with my polymer clay, but I was wondering if anyone could lead me to some info on what kinds of magnets would work best? I want them to actually work and be usuable, (ie, actually hold more than 1 sheet of paper/photo to the fridge). But I also don't want the magnet to be SO strong that the clay rips right off of it, with the magnet still stuck do the fridge. Does anyone have any tips for me? Also, what would be the best kind of adhesive to use? Would super glue work? Or should I use something different? Thanks!
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Hemp Necklaces: I Want Your Opinion! on: September 04, 2011 12:51:27 PM
personally I'm a big fan of the loop and button style o closure for hemp necklaces. makes them easier to take off and put on (I hate tying them) without any clashing.

I've never done a button before, I just made a big knot at the end. (With some of my more worn/older pieces i close them with a safety pin to be sure they don't fall off without me noticing). But I've recently discovered polymer clay and I wanted to make my own beads for the hemp (nice big holes!). I can just make a matching "button" or disc to close with.

Thanks for the feedback! I thinkin' I will toss the idea of clasps.

I've been making hemp necklaces for myself for many years. Just recently I've decided to sell my stuff online (haven't actually post anything in my shop just yet). And I came across some hemp necklaces that actually had clasps to close them, instead of just the hoop/knots.

What I'm looking for is some opinions on those clasps? I really love the convenience of the clasps - it gives a nice finished look and you also don't have to worry about the jewelry falling off. But I also feel like that kinda takes away from the "natural" and traditional feeling of hemp jewelry. If you were to wear a piece of jewelry made out of hemp, which kind of closure would you prefer?

Here is one kind of example:  http://ny-image2.etsy.com/il_570xN.189875786.jpg  --- Not my piece, just one I randomly found on Etsy.
