Faux gemstones in polymer clay

Here at London Jewellery School we are already starting to work on the 2016 timetable and prospectus which means we are thinking about new classes for next year (and may be even this year).

One area where are students have asked for more classes is in polymer clay – especially about more intermediate techniques and effects such as creating faux gems, etc. We are currently researching the options which means we are looking at all the possibilities out there – so to inspire you in the meantime, while we design some new workshops, here are some interesting tutorials we spotted.
