How is polymer clay made at B+B?

Handpainted polymer clay jewellery is a labour of love. Polymer clay pendants are made over a period of five days. The clay is rolled through a pasta machine at a minimum of 30 times. Multiple layers are needed to achieve thickness which means there's a lot of rolling (e.g. 90 times).

The next step is to assemble the layers and apply a texture. 

 

Once the textured is applied, it's time to paint. The first layer is added and must sit to dry for at least 12 hours. Many, many more layers of paint are added to create the multi-hues and depth of these pendants. Why so much paint? Because clay absorbs paint. And, depth comes from multiple layers. Over a period of 3 days the paint is added and allowed to dry.

Then, the clay is baked in an oven. After baking it, the clay is shaved and sanded for smoothness. Near the end of the process, the back of the pendant gets painted and the pendant sits again to dry for another 12 hours. Finally two coats of protectant are added to protect the paint.

 

The last step is to drill a small hole into the clay and add a finding so that the pendant can be attached to the vegan leather rope.

If you're looking for something genuinely Canadian to sell, this product is truly Canadian made with love.

Limited availability

Baubles + Beads purchases stock in advance of sales, as the cutting of gemstones is done in runs. As a result, we've got limited availability of each product type/gemstone. Once it's sold out, it's unlikely that we can get the exact same stone again.  In future products, you'll see the same or similar design but not necessarily the same gemstone(s)

 

Notes:

The findings on the vegan leather are alloys and are nickel and lead free.

Polymer clay is a product made in America and is non toxic, pliable and light weight. Please advise  your customer that polymer clay can't be submerged into or exposed to water and should not be exposed to harsh chemicals. 
 

*Please note: product will be similar to those depicted in photo but may not be exactly as those in the photo. This is due to the variation in gemstones (e.g. a string of stones will have variation in colour and cut) and also the minor inconsistencies related to handmade assembly.
