.... you can do what this Swiss polymer clay artist does and make polymer clay jewelry based on quilt patterns.
Her name is Sandra Trachsel and she does incredible work, IMHO.
Those are fantastic! Looks like a lot of very intricate work.
Wow, those pieces are incredible.
Her profile doesn't give her name, but does mention bring a member of a guild, and their site is http://polyclaykunst.de
Wow can't imagine working will clay on that small of a scale.
Misha her name is in my first message on this thread. (Sandra Trachsel)
As far as I can tell she does not sell her work.
You can get polymer clay to very small scale by starting large and stretching it over and over to "reduce" it in size.
Here's an excellent teacher showing how it is done. She spends the first half of the video talking about how to avoid pitfalls but about halfway through the video she actually gets down to the real work of "reducing" the cane:
She makes it look easy because she's had years and years of practice.
An interesting video, years ago like 12 or 13 I helped DD make a whole bunch of small center pieces using polymer clay. I remember having to work the clay to get it soft enough to work with than having to stop working with it because it would get to warm. We were doing it all by hand so the clay was getting handles more than if we hand used a pasta maker.
