Design Transfers on Jewelry

I like a more free painting technique 
Polymer Clay Universe 2017 has some really fun online classes and I'm learning different techniques for polymer clay.  I want to share the results of one class I've enjoyed.  It's titled  'Mini Masterpieces' with Syndee Holt.  This is the link to the site in case you want to check it out!  https://createalong.teachable.com/p/polymer-clay-universe/

Syndee shows how to use the Jelli Plate, design transfers, silkscreens and alcohol ink pens for coloring.  She also demos ways to finish the jewelry pieces and attach cords. There is so much information and Syndee explains the steps completely.

For years I've been experimenting with ways to use my personal photos in jewelry and now I have another to add to my list.  I can make a black and white laser copy of my photograph and size it in Photoshop, repeat it and then transfer the finished design directly to polymer clay.  That will be another post!

For this project I used a design that Syndee furnished in her class.  This one gets transferred to clay and colored in with alcohol ink pens.  If you like to color, this is a great class and technique.  There are many painting styles to experiment with like the one at the start of this post.  I tried several.
