This project tutorial is 28 pages long and contains 55 photographs. This is a easy level tutorial that requires little to no previous polymer clay experience. I don’t, however, cover the basics of working with polymer clay, so if you’re new to this material you might want to add the Polymer Clay Essentials eBook to your order. Eager to learn more about silkscreens? Don’t miss my All About Silkscreens on Polymer Clay eBook.
In addition to the usual polymer clay and crafting supplies, you’ll need to have a silkscreen stencil of your chosen design and some alcohol inks. The resources section contains links to many silkscreen vendors and artists around the world. I also give a useful list of polymer clay suppliers around the world.

I just finished Opulent Tapestry and had been mulling over a project I’m doing. The tutorial snapped me right back into place and I’m excited to use Ginger’s tutorial info to jazz it up. Is there anything Ginger doesn’t know about polymer clay and artistry!

Excellent tutorial. Lovely designs, great techniques and ideas; well written and very informative. Thank you!!
I love Ginger’s tutorials! I gobbled down All About Silkscreens and Opulent Tapestry, and am more slowly making my way through Sanding and Buffing. Ginger is a wonderful teacher, and the books are beautifully photographed and clearly organized. They have the same elegant simplicity in look and design as her website. Really nice, and perfectly user-friendly.
This tutorial is a very clear and concise project which gives you everything you need to make finished pieces. So much detail, and great pictures, too. Thank you, Ginger!

I love that Ginger always does thorough research on her topics before she posts a newsletter or a new tutorial. Much of the trial and error has been completed by her and saves me lots of time. Instructions and explanations are clear and easily understandable. And, Ginger is always available if I have a question.
I love this tutorial! It’s a great project style layout and teaches you how to create a lovely background, add a metallic silkscreen pattern and finish off the whole thing neatly with beaded hangers. I’ve used the technique for jewelry, boxes, Christmas ornaments and even lanterns and it always turns out great!

Good tutorials help you always produce good results. And this is a good tutorial. Well-written and well-illustrated, this tutorial is a good companion piece to her other tutorial on using silkscreens. And the project(s) in this tutorial are beautiful.
Ginger has done it again! Along with the silkscreen tutorial, this is a wonderful tutorial on how to make earrings and other wonderful pieces. Her instructions are clear and i love the pictures she provides. It is a helpful guide to more beautiful art. Ginger’s tutorials are all wonderfully comprehnsive and she aswers questions when help is needed.
She even remembers that i have a cat named Mouse. Now that shows you what a wonderful person she is!

I really love how Ginger provides this perfect project to go along with the Silk Screening tutorial. This shows clear and creative applications of silk screening to make gorgeous earrings, but is adaptable for pendants as well. Ginger gives step by step instructions that are easy to follow, and I can hardly wait to make some beautiful projects using her methods. As always, Ginger provides extra tips and information from her trial and error process of writing her tutorials. She helps me know exactly what to do, how to do it, and what to avoid. I have loved using all of Ginger’s tutorials-I have a huge collection of her fun, creative, and thorough tutorials and information about using polymer clay. Thanks for all your hard work, Ginger. You have made my life easier and enriched!
