This is one of my solutions to the weak link in my Experimental Petal Neclace:
I cut the curls off the tops of my petals and added eyelets.
Let me say that the Fiskar Eyelet kit I found on sale at Joann's a year ago really worked for this job. What a great little tool!
Experimenting with this has increased my knowledge of polymer clay, its limits and possibilities. Thanks to everyone for your interest and suggestions!
