Sparkle Beads 

Work with glitter, rhinestones and polymer clay to create a colorful sparkle-fest bracelet!

These beads are perfect for just about every occasion and so much fun to make! And you can make them with large grommet holes or regular-sized holes.

I'll guide you step by step through:
  • making your base beads (consistent in size)
  • the ins and outs of working with fine glitter (yes, it's a bit messy but well worth it!)
  • embedding rhinestones into your beads
  • assembling your finished bracelet
Be sure to make extra beads as you go so you can mix and match them up with other beads in your collection!

There's so much variety in this class! You'll create smooth, shiny, antiqued and textured finishes. You'll use flat colors, Skinner blends and a simple stone imitation.

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.

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.

Inclusions in Polymer Clay: Embossing Powders

Make this simple yet stunning choker while learning how to work with inclusions!

An inclusion is simply any material that is mixed directly into your polymer clay, and in this comprehensive three-part class, I'll show you the ins and outs of incorporating embossing powders. They are easy to use, give your clay a unique and very interesting look, and you can experiment with so many different colors. I'll show you how to make:
  • a one or two-color Donut Bead
  • Disc Beads
  • Tube Bead Spacers
  • Bead Caps
  • Bronze Age Beads
You'll finish by assembling your choker and securing your clasp with buna cord closures. I include three different design options using the components made in this class so you can easily make this your own!

 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.

Component Flower Caning 

The floral caning in these pieces may look complicated, but they're not! 

Component caning is just caning that uses individual components to tell a more complex story. I've taught this class to many beginners, and every single student was able to create their own lovely floral compositions using this method. You will be no exception! Once you understand the basic techniques and processes, you are sure to find many uses for them - from pendants and boxes to floral compositions that can be framed and displayed.
