October Back Issue Vol-017 Now Posted in the Polymer Clay Library

Polymer Clay Video Tutorials Volume 17

Video Tutorials: How to make Poppy Beads, Spliced Flower Cane, Faux Leather and Chandelier Wirework.

As October passes us by, another volume of tutorial videos has now been packaged up and released in the back issues of the Polymer Clay Library. It is listed as Volume-017. The photo above, shows the thumbnail images for the 4 videos included in this package:

Video-017-1 Poppy Beads: Sometimes the most beautiful things in life are the simple things. These Poppy Beads are no exception. The clean lines and simple shape of these beads along with the rich colors, make them a fantastic accent or focal bead for your jewelry making projects.

Video-017-2 Spliced Flower Cane: Just because it looks complicated, doesn’t mean it is! This flower cane with its spiky contrasting center, looks like it was hard to make but it’s actually quite simple… but you can keep it your little secret!

Video-017-3 Faux Leather Technique: The beauty of polymer clay is that it can quite quickly and easily become something else. And in this case it does quite a good job at imitating real leather. Use this technique to make faux leather pendants, charms, tags, book beads or even use it to cover wooden boxes and frames. Polymer clay really is the great pretender!

Video-017-4 Chandelier Wirework: This easy wire working technique is the perfect compliment to your handmade polymer clay beads. Use it to make beautiful tiered earrings or a stunning chandelier pendant. You can also use the elements from the design in other jewelry making projects, such as bracelets and necklaces.

    Hi Cindy,

    I just came across your website (via Google) and I have to say, it’s so inclusive and a blast to read through. I can’t wait to try all of these different things! The tutorials are great!


  2. Cindy Lietz, 05 November, 2009

    Welcome Eric. Glad to hear you are having a blast! For some information about what this blog and the members library has to offer, you can follow the link by my name. It will take you to a response I provided for another new person that was asking for some guidance. Enjoy the site, and be sure to keep everyone here updated on your polymer clay progress.

    Cindy, Do you have a list of the palettes and colors in them that members can access or do the lesson number correspond to the pallet for that week or month? Not sure if I said that correctly. Because I have all the color recipes but I don’t know which pallets they’re associated with. Thanks.

  4. Cindy Lietz, 07 November, 2009

    That is a good question Joanne. My plan is to create a central page with all of the color palette photos posted in one place. However, I just have not had time to get this done yet.

    In the meantime there are two ways for you to cross reference your color recipe card collection with the actual color palette photos:

    1) If you receive the html version of my weekly email newsletter, the color palette photos are included. Simply save those emails in a folder on your hard drive for referencing when needed.

    2) Or here at the blog, you can click on the “09: Color Recipes” link in the left side bar, under the “Topic Categories” heading. That will bring up a list of the color recipe post titles which you can click on. Each of those posts will have a color palette photo that identifies the Volume Number, the Recipe Names, and whether the palette is from the A-Series (for paid library members) or the B-series (available free to all Guest List Subscribers).

    I made some maple leaf earrings dusted with pearl ex powder. They came out really nice. Nothing like close up pictures though, to show you every little flaw in your work, like a bad jump ring closing. LOL

    In your honor though Cindy. The beloved maple leaf of Canada. :)

    Laurel you are so sweet! The Maple Leafs are very pretty, thank you for making them in my honor! What kind of stamps/cutters did you use? They almost look like the Maple Syrup Fudge candy I’ve seen in the gift shops here. Even the colors you used looks a little like them. :-)

  7. Laurel, 13 November, 2009

    I used a leaf stamp that my mother-in-law has for her card making. Then I gently cut around the outline of the leaves. And you are right, I have seen those candies before too and it looks like them, especially the gold one. And I said I would never do “food” beads. LOL

    I receive all of your video tutorials every week and I’m learning so much and enjoy the lessons! Many thanks, Mavis Thompson

    Great to hear Mavis! Thanks for letting me know.
