New Tutorial Is Almost Ready
I am finishing the new tutorial, Faux Porcelain Heart Necklace with Hand-Made Necklace Ends.
This tutorial will explain how to make the focal pendant for the necklace, as well as the necklace ends, and how to put it all together into a multi-string necklace with seed beads and fresh-water pearls. The resulting necklace is very delicate and romantic, perfect for any time of the year.
The heart pendant recreates the look of hand-sculpted porcelain in polymer clay. My Grandma used to have a beautiful collection of porcelain vases and trinket boxes. They were very delicate, with tiny hand-sculpted flowers. I remember my fascination with them when I was a little girl...
For this necklace, I decided to make a pair of matching polymer clay necklace ends, because anything metal seemed a bit out of place with this design. Making them is quite easy, actually. In fact, the whole project is rather simple, and does not require any previous experience with polymer clay. List of tools and materials is also short and simple. You do not even need a pasta machine to do it!
This tutorial shall be available by the end of February. Please join my mailing list to be notified when the tutorial is ready.
