Polymer Clay Contest Treasure Hunt-Win a Bead Jewelry Making Course

Beginner Bead Making Course - Treasure Hunt Prize

Winner will receive access to the 39 polymer clay tutorials (web videos) in my beginner bead making course!

On Friday or Saturday of this week, the rules for the first ever Beads and Beading Online Treasure Hunt Contest will be emailed out to all current subscribers of my video newsletter. So if you want to be part of the fun, you’ll need to get on the Polymer Clay Tutor Guest List right away.

If you want to see what you’re playing for, here’s a link to the course information page: Polymer Clay Bead Making for Beginners

I personally think the course is an invaluable resource for anyone wanting to make fimo / sculpey beads and canes. But don’t just take my word for it. Here’s some feedback from a student who just recently finished going through all of the tutorial videos:

Hi Cindy,

I have learned a great deal from the course and am glad to have it to refer to when I need to refresh my memory. The material is well thought out and presented in an easy to understand format.

Sometimes teachers forget that their students don’t know as much as they do and their instructions are too advanced. You, on the other hand, know your audience.

You present the class to beginners as though they know nothing about the subject. And as beginners, we mostly don’t know anything. It makes it very easy to understand and follow the "classes".

    I have loved the 1st video course! What fabulous lessons you’ve created for me… the beginner.

    My interest is in learning to make unique buttons for quilted wall hangings and pillows. Do you have any videos featuring button making?

    I also would enjoy learning more from your wonderful blog pages. How is it possible to view the “full” videos from there? I would love to learn more.

    Thank you Cindy
    Robin :)

    Hi Robin,

    I’m so glad you loved the course. I currently do not have any videos on polymer clay button making but I’ll put that on my list of topics to cover. Thanks for mentioning it.

    [Added: The “Sanding Polymer Clay” link beside my name will take you to a comment in another thread where Linda talks about the fun she is having making polymer clay buttons].

    In regards to accessing full versions of all the Guest List newsletter videos here at the blog, I’ll be making an announcement in a couple of weeks about that. I’m just in the process of setting up a new content management system which will allow you to view the back issues in an organized library.

    Stay tuned…
