I just got started on polymer clay (yes, it IS addicting!) and made this necklace last week...along with  bunch of other things...

stamped necklace, with silver powder brushed over the top...

I have matching earrings, and also made some faux turquoise beads and hairsticks too, as well as covered 3 altoid tins...I'm on a roll!

I think I need to go to Jo-Ann's and buy their pasta machine this week...on sale for $15!

So, what do you guys think?

First let me say I think your necklace rocks - I love the faux-metal-stone kind of look you've got going. Next, let me say that if you love making jewelry/clay stuff (and it sure sounds like you do) then go with it, whether or not everyone else is into your creations. I don't think you'll have a problem there, though.  Wink

Oooooo...if I wore jewelry like that I would be all over that like white on rice!

(I'm a simple jewelry kinda girl...until this year I wore the same small silver hoop earrings for 4 years without ever changing them!)

But...I'd continue with the jewelry making if I were you!  You so rock at it!!!

Great faux metal!  And I like that some of them are hanging with other bits too.

Can't see well enough to tell quite what's going on with the disk-like pieces up on the cording though...are they more faux metal?  or are they glass and just look like metal with the reflections?.
If they're faux metal, how are they attached?

The only clay pieces on this one are the large square and rectangle pendants.  The rest are glass and metal beads, and it is on memory wire.
I poked holes with a bamboo skewer in them before baking, and wire wrapped them to dangle with the beads from the wire.  I really like blending different elements (glass/clay/plastic/stone/metal) in my jewelry; I think it creates an original, hand-designed look.

Thanks everyone for the props!  I have big plans for this clay stuff...just got to get these 4 paintings finished and off my easel so I can play with it again (work, work, work, right?)  Smiley

I will try to post some more pics soon...I am especially proud of my faux turquoise!
