Learn how to use your donut shaped beads & findings in endless creative ways, discover new stringing techniques and colour them in fun polymer designs!
The PolyPediaOnline Disc-Chic class is your new guide for making disc-shaped beads & donut beads using elegant findings.
The DiscChic jewellery were originally created with reused computer components.
I discovered them accidentally. An associate showed me aluminium parts disassembled, he planned to discard them for recycling and I instantly told him i’ll ensure they’ll be reused in the most outstanding method!!
In my polymer clay studio! :)
These findings are simple metal parts taken apart from 3.5 floppy discs. A free video follow below.
These colorful Disc-Chic flat beads can be created with all clay brands, liquid clay, colors, textures, powders, paints, skinner blends and techniques you can think of, Their beauty is in their uniqueness, using the metal findings with polymer clay makes your beads look very elegant and stylish.
