Sources for viewing videos, purchasing beads, clay, and supplies are suggestions only. I’ve reviewed the video and found the instruction to be clear. I’ve also used most of the vendors for ordering products to my satisfaction. However, I cannot guarantee your experience, the quality of the merchandise you receive, or the delivery time promised.

The Polymer Clay Extruder – This is an optional tool for the workshop but if you do have one (or purchase one) it will prove to be very handy. Don’t worry. You can easily do all-polymer bezel construction by hand. The tool just lends some ease to the process. The image shown is the “FIMO” brand polymer clay extruder. It is around $40 US.
