TEXTURE IT YOURSELF
Use this kit to craft your very own unique piece of textured jewellery.
WHAT WILL I LEARN? How to use polymer clay combined with interesting textures that can be found around your home to create a stunning and completely unique pendant. You will learn how to attach it to a chain along with how to finish it with sandpaper. Your creation will then be cast in recycled sterling silver and sent back to you for you to treasure forever.
The T.I.Y KIT allows you to take the time to handcraft a necklace that is designed and made by you, it can't really get any more unique that that!
If you want to create matching pendants for you and a pal, check out T.I.Y KIT - Pair of Pendants.
WHAT'S IN THE KIT? Your kit includes everything you need to get creative from your kitchen table, sofa or the back seat of your car, what ever floats your boat.
• Polymer clay • 15cm ruler • 45cm sterling silver chain • Square of baking paper • Cocktail stick • 3 different grades of sand paper • Return envelope • Info sheet • Design sheet • Design Info • Order form • A branded jewellery pouch • A tutorial video (once your T.I.Y KIT has been ordered, I will send this to you)
One important thing to say - you will need an oven that can reach 110 °C.
HOW DO I GET THE SHINY STUFF?
When you have completed your masterpiece, you simply put it in the pre-paid envelope and pop it in your local Royal Mail postbox, once I have received your creation, your sterling silver pendant should take 3/4 weeks to be cast, finished and delivered to you!
Once received, gold plated silver pendants should take 4/6 weeks to be cast, finished, plated and delivered to you!
ANY HIDDEN COSTS? Nope, materials and return UK postage costs included.
Please note, if you order a T.I.Y kit from outside of the UK you are responsible for any potential customs fees. The price of this kit only includes return UK postage costs, so you would need to cover all return postage costs to the UK.
HOW DO I BUY A KIT? Simply select what metal and chain type you would like from the drop down menu.
DO I HAVE TO SEND IT BACK BY A CERTAIN DATE? Yes please, within 6 months of purchasing, as metal costs fluctuate.
-Gold Plated Sterling Silver £140
If you buy a silver kit and decide later on that you would like it plated, that's no problem, you can pay an additional £35 to have it plated afterwards.
This was the exact process I used to create the Root Range, which is my best selling range! I took an imprint of a cabbage leaf into some polymer clay, formed the impressions into geometric shapes, baked them in the oven and then cast them in recycled silver.
This is such a tactile and hands on process, you do not need any jewellery making skills at all. The T.I.Y KIT would make a lovely gift or if you have a family, you can even get your little ones involved (with adult supervision of course!)
If you have any questions, just drop me an email, I would be more than happy to help. I cannot wait to see what you make! Please share your creations, using #TIYKIT
Happy crafting! Laura x
