Jewelry Techniques Video
Here's a terrific video from the "Master Artisans"
series, featuring British polymer clay artist, author
and teacher Sue Heaser. Learn to make beautiful leaf
brooches, dainty fairy earrings, pendants and brooches
with teeny-tiny delicate flowers and butterflies, and
a fascinating mosaic technique imitating Italian Pietra
My favorite tip of Sue's was using real leaves to stamp
into black polymer clay, and then applying iridescent
powders (like Pearl Ex) to create "bronze"
brooches. The excellent close-up photography shows just
how to shape the leaves with various tools to make them
Sue also shows you how to make marbled clay, cut tiny
pieces accurately for lovely miniatures, and much more.
