Coolest Creation

I don't always read the newsletters I subscribe to, especially from vendors who sell things.

But thankfully I opened today's Metal Clay Supply newsletter because they have the COOLEST accessories for metal clay and I MUST have some!!! I just need to sell a few more pieces of jewelry so I can justify making another supply purchase. =)

O.M.G.!!! (and G always stands for Gosh on this site).


I love these things. They will create a more finished look in my fancier pendants and earrings. And now I can actually set some of my faceted stones without having to mess with soldering.

They will add a little bit of cost to my work but they will also allow me some more flexibility and save me time. I can't wait to order some and I will (try to) report how they work. :)

I use mfg settings all the time - and they are great. Wish you weren't so far away (almost couldn't be further) cause I don't know where to start with PMC....

LOL PMC is SOOOO much fun! I walked one of my facebook friends through it and she really likes it. There are people way more qualified than me to teach or write tutorials but I'm tempted. I'll have to do some research and find some of my old favorite links.

I took a PMC class once that incorporated settings and it was really awesome. I haven't tried it on my own since, but you may have helped motivate me!

LOL Well, that's what I'm here for. =)
