So I decided to blog my experiments and hunt down some tutorials to try them out, but instead I found a tutorial using some perfect pearls and as I have had some sitting around for a year unused I decided to start there.
So here goes I don't have the best colour assortment as you can see but my main aim is to learn new techniques for using them. and applying them to my jewellery.

Finally I searched for some tutorials for perfect pearls and decided to have a go at this one here on the Polyform Website Dry Erase Tile Board. Now as jewellery is more my thing and I like to find ways in which techniques can be used to make jewellery, I obviously didn't make the tile, instead I made a sheet of clay using the methods from the tutorial and here are my finished pieces.
I tore the sheets of my clay and applied them to a black background, I am really pleased with the results and I hope to make some lovely pendants from these, The backs have just been applied so now they just need sanding and buffing.
