Friendly Plastic Cuttlebug Jewelry - San Diego Class

OK, I think I've got this down pat and can teach it while I'm out in San Diego. It's Friendly Plastic pellets melted and turned into a sheet, embosed, inked, and then turned into jewelry:





And I'll show you Linda Peterson's bezel setting:

Look at that depth!  You'll have to come to class to see how I did that!!!

If I have time later this summer, maybe I'll put together some kits so those of you who don't live in southern California can do this.  Hmmm....might be something we do at the Lucy McGoo retreat this fall!!  I really love how this turned out....and I think we can make them in under 2 hours!

I haven't really been bitten by the plastic pellet bug but i've been following you thru the process. I absolutely LOOOVE the pendant with the embossed bird. I have to say it is my favorite so far. I would buy that!! I like the silver frame setting as well. Thanks for sharing your journey, ms.cheryl

Having seen these in person, I can assure all that the pictures don't do justice to the end result. They are just wonderful. I continue to be amazed at the bredth of injinuity this medium inspires.

These pieces are very unique. I like their look. Very much like an impressionist painting and also like encaustic work. Nice..thanks for posting :)
