Split Pod Pin

This pin is fun to make and wear!

In this two-part class, you'll learn how to create an elegant pin that I encourage you to customize with your own favorite colors and canes. It includes two tapered split pods – which actually start as whole forms and are then divided so technically they're quarter pods.

The element that connects the pods is the Zipper Cane. Instructions for making this cane are also included in the class, and you'll learn how to add the neat pin back finding.

Polymer Clay 101
In this two-part foundation video class, I share my years of experience working with this medium while answering the following beginner questions:
  • What basic tools do I need?
  • Why do I need a pasta machine?
  • Which brand of clay should I choose?
  • How do I create a work area and store the clay?
  • How do I work with adhesives?
  • What's involved in baking the clay and how do I finish my pieces?
This class also takes you a step further by learning how to make and transform three different types of basic canes. I call these "double duty" canes because of their versatility. The tools you'll need are minimal, and once you see how easy it is to get started, my hope is you'll want to continue the journey!

Flower Ring

Rings are a passion of mine! When I posted a few images of my most recent rings on Facebook, several people said, "Make a class!" So I did, and it's quite comprehensive with the goal of taking your ring making to anew level.

I picked the Mission Style Base because it has so many advantages. It's squared off (so it sits perfectly on my dresser), it doesn't twist on the finger, and design-wise, it's quite versatile yet very strong. In addition to the flower version, you'll also learn how to make the fun stacking rings shown above.

 Starry Night Cane

This cane started as way for me to use the colorful bits of clay that I've accumulated over time – good usable bits of clay in so many colors. Just sort your clay bits into different color families, and you'll have the start of your own Starry Night Cane!

No two will be the same – some monochromatic, some with more contrast. This cane is a great addition to your polymer clay techniques toolbox.

I love making boxes, and this futuristic one is inspired by a favorite show from my youth. With its curved legs, bright colors and spinning knob, it certainly does have a cartoony feel.
