Just wanted to say hi and jump in. I've been making jewelry for many years now, but just made my first pieces of polymer clay yesterday. I originally wanted to try lampworking, like my mom did, but the start-up costs (as well as ongoing costs) to do it right are too much for me right now. From making my first pieces, I actually like it since I can do detail work.
I have a few pictures of the best that came out posted for sale on my Etsy store. If you're interested, the necklace is here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/123302617/silver-blue-necklace-blue-white-egg
one of my bead sets is here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/123299631/blue-white-large-hole-beads-delft-blue
I'm sure as I make more, I'll cringe just like I do when thinking of my first jewelry pieces. But, for now I like what I made. I used Kato clay and a new convection oven with separate in-oven temperature gauge to cure the beads. I hand wet-sanded them, and then buffed them using the $7 (with coupon) Harbor Freight cheap rotary tool.
