I LOVE to make jewelry. I’ll always make jewelry. The only thing jewelry-making lacks is the ability to “work large”. You see, I sometimes I feel like I spend entire days without moving anything but my eyeballs and four of my fingers (2 pointers, two thumbs). Such is the life of a caner. So, for balance (and sanity), I started making larger items early in my clay life. Sure, I still make tons of cane, but I use it on a scale that is more expansive.

Tips for Large Jewelry Projects

If you’re in the mood to try some bigger projects, I recommend projects like wall art, boxes, & picture frames. If you’re not into caning, all these items can be made with texture, silk screens, or extruded clay. Enjoy!
