In this tutorial I will show you how to make a texture plate and how to make jewelry with a FAUX wired effect without using wire. The wire effect will be created with the texture plate that you make in the tutorial. Cloisonne is another name for this particular effect, although true cloisonne jewelry uses real wire to separate the cells of color. My technique uses just polymer clay. Lots of liquid polymer clay is used to create the glass like finish, too.
The materials needed are polymer clay, Perfect pearls or Pearl ex powders, acrylic paint and Kato liquid polymer clay. This is an easy to easy+ tutorial. You can create this jewelry without any prior clay experience.
There are 15 steps, 23 photos and 7 pages. Some tools you will need are a pasta machine, an acrylic roller, a razor blade, needle tool, parchment paper, paint brushes, water, oven, and scrap paper.

Hi, my name is Christi and I am a self taught polymer artist - When I first saw a polymer clay demonstration on the Carol Duvall show on HGTV, I decided to try it - I was hooked. I have many books and am always interested in trying new things with the clay. I have been active with polymer clay since 2004. I have written for Polymer Cafe magazine (August 2009) and have several tutorials available on my site. My work has been featured in Polymer Cafe magazine and in the book "Polymer Artists Showcase", by Tejae Floyde.
I have many new seed bead designs on my site. I fell in love with bead weaving in 2012. I create my own designs for bracelets and earrings to add to my inventory. I have recently completed my first beading tutorial called "Flat Cellini Spiral Bracelet".
All of my designs are handmade by me in my home studio. I use a mix of clay brands, including Premo, Fimo and Kato. Kato liquid polymer clay is my favorite sealer for finishing almost all of my pieces, including beads and crochet hooks. I have recently added ice cream scoops to my Etsy shop. I have a bead supply shop on Etsy, too!
