What are you most proud of? I made a zipper pull from additional polymer clay beads, and fitted ends with gold eyelets, (eyelets available in gold and silver in large quantity packages at Hancock Fabrics). Assemblinf beads like a bracelet, I added strength and durability by pairing the strand of beads with cotton print fabric--1" strip folded twice to form 1/4" pull. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I'm really digging the creative process of making polymer clay beads and buttons to decorate my totes. When shopping for various colors of polymer clay, be sure to get a brick of translucent polymer clay. I combine a pea size bit of color (in this case lime green), and mixed it thoroughly into 1/3 brick of translucent. Really beautiful results. A purple zipper on a brown tote? Well, why not?
