This is an exciting new concept in creating polymer clay pieces for jewelry that are interchangeable. Imagine creating that perfect piece and being able to wear it as a pendant, or switch it out and wear it as a ring or on a bracelet. Any clay technique you can imagine can be applied and it is not only fun to wear but fun to make as well.
When I first came across this idea I was ecstatic!! It took months to research out and find the right findings that would work and could be best used with the clay. After several more months of testing it out we had decided that this was our favorite way of creating jewelry pieces and wanted to share it.
This new system basically consists of a "snap" like finding that you either fill or add to the back of your clay design along with various jewelry findings to "snap" in and wear. There are some little tricks to working with these snap findings and that is what I share with you in my new lesson.

In this pdf lesson I give step by step instructions on the different ways to work with the snap findings as well as design ideas and inspiration for creating with them. While any clay technique can be applied, as a bonus, I share in the lesson how to make our popular Jewel-tone Textured Flowers. They are similar to my "Sculpted Flowers" technique but instead are textured and colored in rich jewel tones.
Also included is a 3 page photo gallery for inspiration along with supply references to help you find some of the unique findings and materials to create your interchangeable jewelry pieces. For your convenience, we have the necessary findings to get you started available on our website. (click on photo below) and some we put together as starter packs.
