Yes, I did it. I received an awesome Amazon.ca gift certificate for Christmas from my brother and decided to spend it on some books about making jewelery and food with polymer clay.
Making Polymer Clay Beads by Carol Blackburn. I am looking at trying out making some beads and using them in my jewelery designs, because as of yet I've not used it. So I'm pretty stoked to learn something new and it looks like there are many designs available to learn.
I'm hoping it won't take too many tools and instruments to make those beads, I do have some on hand but I'm hoping they keep it as simple as possible to pull off some really pretty designs. It will be interesting to see how bead making goes, because it would be fun to add them to my occassional spurts of jewelery design that doesn't look bad... heh.
Then I picked out Tasty Trinkets: Polymer Clay Food Jewellery by Charlotte Stowell. This is really what started it all for me. Learning to make little food charms to add to bracelets, earrings, and necklaces. I have been getting away from this and I thought it would be fun to learn a few more techniques and try it again, since the fun of it hasn't gone away but I've just got caught up in making characters and flowers and jewelery... aahhhh! So much to do and I'm looking forward to trying to get back into the little charms and maybe try miniture foods.
Which then leads me to my next two book finds. Sooo exciting!!
