Fashion is one of the easiest ways to express who you are. From quirky scarves to artsy socks, there are a lot of opportunities to customize your wardrobe—and we can’t forget jewelry! Depending on the materials, however, these accessories can break the bank. But thanks to jewelry made from polymer clay, you can wear stylish creations that are at an affordable price point.
So, what is polymer clay? It’s a specific type of sculptural material that can be molded by hand and baked in the oven. Sculpey is one of the most popular makers of this unique medium, and it comes in a variety of colors. For even more customization, it can be painted with acrylic and coated in glazes to give it a glossy sheen.
Makers across the world are using polymer clay in the same way as glass or metal. They are producing colorful beads, sculptural pendants, dangly earrings, and much more. Without the constraints that come from blowing glass or forging metal, there are endless creative possibilities.
