My second favorite creation is what I call a buckle. This is just a big flat bead with two a hole on each side. They are great for focal pieces on either a necklace or a bracelet.
I have also used it to make the center of a big bead that I might want to cover with canes.
Here are some other ideas for useful tools or displays:
- I been meaning to use some scrap clay to make some molds, stamps and texture sheets out of some screws and findings I have been collecting for this purpose.
- I am also in need of an Earring Stand to photograph my earrings. Just make a base with polymer clay and use strong artistic wire (16-20 gauge) to make the stand and arms that will display my earrings. What was first, the chicken or the egg? In my post: Weekend Reviews - Blogs to Visit: Polymer Clay I I mention having talked about earring displays recently. Well, this post was under construction and I referred to it before posting it! Talk about a LOOP! Yoou can find a great way to make a different type of earring stands in Tina Holden's Mini Displays Tutorial.
- And last but not least. Look at this cool Handmade Texture Tools project from PolymerClayWeb
