The designs shown in this tutorial were inspired by the images one may see under a microscope: plant and animal cells, pollen grains, insect eggs, etc.
All these designs are based on the same concept as a honeycomb. As you remember, a honeycomb is quite a strong structure, although it consists of the cells with very thin walls. I am using the same idea, except that the shape of cells is different for each pendant.
This tutorial includes 27 pages of step-by-step instructions with helpful tips and more than 60 detailed pictures. A separate section is devoted to possible errors and how to fix or avoid them. As you can see from the Example pages, this tutorial explains how to make different openwork structures (such as the white ones in the first photo of this listing). The pendants in color shown in the 4-th picture are not covered in this tutorial; I am showing them here just to demonstrate the possibilities of this technique.
This is a new revision of the original Openwork Pendants tutorial. In this version, the step that used to require a waiting period of up to a few days is now reduced to a couple of hours.
I will show you how to form the pendants with and without polymer clay background and how to assemble these pendants into a simple yet impressive necklace.
No special tools or materials are needed for this project, but you will need a hemisphere form to shape your pendants on. For this purpose, you can use an old lamp bulb (as demonstrated in the tutorial). If a more professional approach is preferred, you may want to get a metal concave/convex form. Currently, I am offering a few of those in this very shop (downsizing my studio):
