NPCG - New Site

The web site of National Polymer Clay Guild has been recently updated. I cannot even imagine how much work such a major update required. The site looks great, runs fast, and has tons of useful information.

Trusien's Lily-of-the-valley

Trusien Lowenthal from Netherlands graciously allowed me to share this picture of her new pendant on my blog. The pendant is 2.5 by 0.5 inches and is made using the faux cloisonné technique. I especially like Trusien’s version of the bail for this pendant – it is both practical and pretty.

Emerging from the cocoon...

...of my imagination is another twist on the same technique. I am playing with inclusions here. The butterfly bead (the yellow wire on its sides marks the two horizontal holes) was one of my birthday presents to my friend.

Below is a closer shot of the two overlaying wings.

More "Student's" Work

Isn’t it amazing how different people can come up with something totally different while using the same tools?

Below is a picture of a few creations by Fenian from Bead and Button Forum. Fenian bought a tutorial for faux cloisonné hearts I offer on my website (, and this is what she made based on the tutorial. She used different pigments from those that I recommend and apparently decided to avoid my favorite black color all together. The resulting palette is bright and happy.

Sarah’s Creations

I received an E-mail from Sarah Fisher from Philadelphia Polymer Clay Guild with pictures of her projects she made after taking my class two weeks ago. The pictures are below. Here is what she wrote: “I love your technique- it is well suited to giving some colorful life to the line drawing doodles I like to make”.

I love Sarah’s designs. She is definitely braver with the bright colors than I am!
