Sculpey polymer clay is a fabulous medium to use in jewelry making. Valentine’s day is fast approaching and it makes the perfect reason to give someone you love a piece of jewelry. Now, who would not love a piece of handmade jewelry? The first piece I want to show you today is a technique called Faux Sugar Beads. They are the polymer clay version of blown glass sugar beads. These pieces and directions were created for Crafts N Things magazine. If you would like to view the directions please go to their website http://www.craftsnthings.com.

The heart pendant and bracelet are crafted with one of my favorite techniques and my favorite color. The technique is called Mokume Gane and my favorite color is aqua. A tie for second is turquoise and peacock blue. I love Mokume Gane since you can create so many cool looks with the same technique. No two pieces are alike and it is also a great way to work in unique color combinations. You will have to check back on the blog this month for my Mokume Gane tutorial.

Recently, I discovered Push Molds and for this piece I used the Flowers and Leaves Push Mold. Let me tell you it was fantastic. I dusted the molds with cornstarch and made my first petal. It came out perfect. I was hooked. I created all day long. I made every combination of flowers I could think of. The pin is my version of a lily. The directions are available from Crafts N Things magazine.

I hope you have enjoyed my Valentine’s Day jewelry inspirations created from Sculpey Polymer clay. Create a piece of jewelry for someone this Valentine’s Day and share the love.
