I love findings. I think they “make” a jewelry piece. In this case, the jewelry is literally made with the findings. There are hundreds of bezels and findings to choose from; and they’re available in craft stores and online in gold, silver, black, copper, gun metal, and my favorite, antique brass. These are so easy, you’ll want to try them all.

The Ikat Cane mimics a very specific textile process of weaving dyed threads on a loom. Here the Ikat is shown in only two colors – black & white – for high visibility. Once you have the process down, you may want to experiment with making your Ikat Canes with several colors to achieve a variety of effects.

The Checkerboard Cane is one of the most basic and simple canes. You can incorporate as many colors as you like but typically a checkerboard is two contrasting colors. The Checkerboard Cane is different from the others in the Basic Canes series because it is a square cane instead of round. Practicing good technique is important to creating accurate canes. Once you have mastered making simple canes with good technique, you will be able to combine your simple canes together to create more complex ones.

Make a mini dollhouse for your dolls or as personalized gift complete with itsy-bitsy furniture. I used Sculpey Soufflé for the roof and roof tiles since it makes the structure very strong but light. By using different clays, it will look as though different parts of the house were made using different materials, just like a real house! The windows are made using Sculpey Liquid Bakeable Clay which allows light to pass through it. You can also use different premo Sculpey Accents to simulate pearl-effect floors and granite kitchen counters. Dollhouse is like an ongoing collage project so keep adding mini accents to give it more character and detail.

This clever project combines Premo and Liquid Bakeable Clay to  will help you create some show-stopping earrings!
