I want to introduce you to a new feature on this blog that I’m going to call “DIY Champion”
Dismount Creative has a tutorial for an amazing faceted necklace and earring set made from polymer clay. I gave it a shot, but I couldn’t get clean, sharp facets on the clay (even after some time in the freezer!) I even tried to sand them down after baking, but unfortunately, it… didn’t work:
Instead of using glitter in it, I dusted them with two colors of gold mica. It is damn hard to get a good picture of sparkley things, let me tell you. Plus, it’s been cloudy for like, a year now, and I couldn’t freaking get a good picture.
Here they are, all pretty and strung up. I’ll have to get some earring posts tomorrow and glue them on. All in all, I’m pretty happy with them. I might make about a hundred more. There’s something deeply satisfying about slicing off clean layers.
Are you going to make this? Tell me about it!
