Verdigris Gingko Leaves on Antique Copper

About this design:

The polymer clay pendant was created by me using an embossing technique. I added fluted copper barrel beads, carved African Turquoise teardrops, African Turquoise Rounds, copper filigree bead caps, and a 28mm copper toggle clasp.

    omg, omg, omg! Lynda, this is awesome! I’m not sure which part I like more – the strand or the pendant! this is another thing I’d like to play with, polymer clay. do you bake it in your own kitchen oven – or have a separate oven? I’ve heard that it’s safe, just wanna hear it a few more times. push me over the fence, PLEASE! – because whoa….. if I could do ‘anything’ like this, I’d be one happy camper.

    Hi, Smoky Rose. I just picked you up and threw you over the fence. LOL

    Thank you so much. I have a nesco roaster oven that I dedicated for polymer clay. You are not supposed to use tools or utensils, etc. for food after you use them with clay, so I play it safe and sacrificed my nesco. Many of my fellow PCAGOE members use toaster ovens, too, and I have heard of using your kitchen oven, but pc gives off fumes when it bakes and leaves a chemical residue behind, so I think it is best to use something else and in a well-ventilated place.

    As long as the toaster/roaster, etc. can bake at 265 to 275 degrees farenheit for 30 minutes per 1/4″ thickness, you’re good to go.

    This necklace is a work of art. The pictures of it really help to see all of the creation.
