I feel so blessed to live less than a mile from the ocean. Our beach here in Oregon is so different from the Southern California beaches we went to most weekends growing up. Of course they do have some things in common; ocean waves, seagulls, sand plus we have beautiful driftwood almost everywhere! I made these earrings today with our next visit to the beach in mind. They are faux cloisonné using the new Sculpey Liquid Clear, which I am loving! I use pastel chalks to tint the clear liquid Sculpey as it allows the textured silver leaf background patterns to show through like real cloisonné jewelry. I will be including step-by-step photos and instructions for creating Faux Cloisonné and adding a unique glass-like finish in my upcoming “Polymer & Pastels” Craft E-Book. The announcement will be at the end of June on my website www.ShirleyRufener.com.
