Why not give this course as a gift to a friend?



About this course (approx one hour viewing time)

Aimed at complete beginners this class is designed to introduce you to Polymer Clay and show you how easy it is to combine colours and shapes to create kaleidoscope-like patterns and how to transfer those patterns into bright and colourful jewellery.

This class will take you step-by-step through these important stages of creating polymer clay jewellery.

  • Preparing the clay
  • Using a pasta machine to create sheets of even thickness
  • Creating a selection of interesting mini-canes with different patterns
  • Combining the mini-canes to make a glorious ‘millefiore’ cane.
  • Using our finished cane to create a variety of jewellery items
  • Baking and finishing the items.

Even if you are a complete beginner by working through these stages you will soon feel confident to begin creating colourful polymer clay jewellery at home!

All I Made It! on-line workshops include an information pack for you to download - you'll find a list of essential tools and materials, any patterns or diagrams needed, an overview of the projects chapter-by-chapter, further suggested reading and info on where you can meet me for a live lesson. You will also be able to contact me directly with any questions so you never need to worry about getting stuck on a project - just email me!
