Polymer Clay Bib and Collar Necklace Tutorials

Collar necklaces are a great way to showcase your favorite polymer clay techniques. They can be intimidating at first but in the tutorials below I hope to show you everything you need to know to make the process easy and rewarding.

I'll show you tips and tricks to get the shapes just right, how to bake them so that they sit beautifully on the neckline, as well as how to achieve a smooth satin sheen.

You will be able to use the simple polymer clay techniques I show you, and with some practice, make stunning bib and collar necklaces using any cane, veneer or even surface effect of your choice.

In this polymer clay collar tutorial we will be making what I have called a donut collar. It's a one piece collar with a hole in it just like a donut pendant. You can leave the hole empty, or you can fill it with another veneer if you like, or even create a collar bezel instead.

In this instance we will be leaving the hole empty, and we will be using beautiful silver mica shifts and the blended flower cane from part one of this tutorial to create the effect of flowers blowing away in the wind.
