Make a sampler of thirty different polymer clay beads that will be combined into a stunning sampler necklace with a custom covered clasp. Join Lindly Haunani, who has over 20 years of experience teaching polymer clay workshops, for an exciting, fun and fast paced weekend

You will learn how to make a “perfect” Skinner blend that will be fashioned into four “mother” canes: stripes, spirals, rounds and a stacked slab. You will then explore the possibilities of the more complex canes including: lace, a veined leaf, shaded flowers and a zipper cane.

Strategies for combining canes and tweaking their profiles will be presented. Then you will explore expanding your repertoire of bead shapes to include: bi- cones, pillows, rounds, twists and tubes.

Eccentric bead shapes, created by folding, twisting or cutting, will be presented, along with strategies for exploring scale, proportion and emphasis in your finished pieces.

Come with your two magical hands and your sense of humor: be prepared to be amazed and leave with an enhanced sense of your artistic sense and a beautiful sampler of beads to combine into a necklace or bracelet. This workshop is appropriate for a beginner or as a refresher/expansion course for the more experienced polymer clay artist.
