Polymer Clay Jewelry Intensive: Seven Bead Bracelet

Explore the wide variety of possibilities in polymer clay for jewelry while focusing on seven unusual beads for a comprehensive sampler bracelet. In this intensive weekend workshop students will investigate various bead shapes, explore hollow and foil cores, surface decoration with simple and complex canes, as well as carving, drawing, onlay, mokumegane and mosaic work. Time permitting, students will have the opportunity to work independently to pursue a particular area of interest with guidance from the instructor. Students will work with a restricted pallet in order to give focused attention to technique. Cynthia is masterful with polymer clay, bringing a creative edge to everything she does.
