It is so rewarding to create a custom design, make a rubber stamp from the design right at home and then create precious metal jewelry from it. And its even more fun to wear your jewelry when it's complete, as a true expression of your personal style. With this technique you can imitate the look of Champleve (shahmp-luh-vay) enamel work by filling the cells of your molded metal clay design with tinted liquid polymer clay. Once the pendant and polymer clay beads are cured, the liquid clay takes on a metallic sheen as the silver metal shows through from beneath.
