Faux Amber, Coral, and Turquoise Revisited…


I spent time this past week replenishing the polymer clay faux amber, coral, and turquoise beads that are included in my “Tibetan Inspired Beaded Rope Necklace” kit. After finishing my task I decided to play with several different shapes…I made turquoise nuggets, chunky coral beads, several amber donuts, and a long amber spindle to name a few. Then I decided that it would be nice to have a really wide amber cuff to compliment my summer wardrobe! I embedded some teeny coral and turquoise nuggets, a fine silver metal clay ammonite, and decorative dots of sterling silver as well. I love this cuff and am so pleased with the fit…measuring 2″ in width, it is very comfortable to wear! The clay I prefer using? Premo! Sculpey™. It is the perfect material for a cuff because it has some pliability and great memory. I can easily slip the cuff onto my wrist because the opening “gives” easily and then returns to its original position. The clay also comes in an extensive array of colors that can easily be blended into custom colors. When I find time, I’m going to make a wide faux coral cuff and perhaps I’ll even mix up some faux jade and ivory!
