1  Fall clay food jewelry (Heavy on the images) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by gamekitty on: November 02, 2008 07:58:46 PM
Hello everyone!

Thank you so much for all your kind comments about my work earlier. Here are some more polymer clay works, this time jewelry related:

Some pendent/necklaces I made out of treats from a local coffee shop

Chocolate tart with blackberries and white chocolate flakes

The "Evasion" Truffle ring with coffee bean decorations

Fall present cake with a rose and maple leaves

Pecan pie with pie plate ring. Honestly I don't know why people don't make pie rings but I fell in love with pecan pie and I happen to have one lying around in mini so I put it on the ring. It seems to fit the season well.

... and a fall dark red rose ring for people who loves flowers.

I hope you enjoy these new works!

2  Help! Glue problem! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by gamekitty on: October 24, 2008 01:31:06 AM
Hello everyone!

I am trying to glue porcelain to sterling silver rings (cabochon style glue setting) and I am having such trouble with the glues. I have the jeweler's glue (GS Hypo cement), jeweler's epoxy, and E6000. I tried on 3 different porcelain plates and just didn't want to set, even after 12-24 hours of wait time. It stays on just long enough for me to wear it. Then the plate would fall off. The porcelain plate in question has no glaze on the bottom so the surface is rough. I cleaned both the plate and the sterling silver ring and roughen up the surface on the contact point for the ring and the plate BUT still it won't stay.

The only thing that seems to work is extra strength superglue. There are no apparent gaps in the contact point either. So far it has stayed faithfully on the ring without falling off (despite me yanking as hard as I can, pushing it, etc...) for a month now.

This is the ring in question btw:

And the finished project with superglue

And... what the contact point looks like (it covers the entire bottom of the glue base) and the porcelain plate is flat on the bottom.

SO... here are my questions:

1) Any suggestions to why is this happening?
2) Should I just use superglue if it works?
3) Do you recommend using superglue on rings long term? As I said it has worked very well on staying for a month now.

Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you very much for helping and I hope you have a wonderful day.

Hello everyone!

This is my first time posting here. Here are some things I made lately.

A bunch of food canes I have made. It is hard to see the tomato one in that light.

A fall pumpkin fields chocolate cheesecake

And even something for Christmas: a gingerbread prep board.

Let me know what do you think!
