No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't stay focused on polymer in my web surfing last weekend. I ended up ordering books and CDs and this wonderful ring (actually, two are pictured here) from Magnetic jewelry has always intrigued me and a magnetic ring offered too many possibilities to resist.

I'm hoping I can cover this baby with polymer clay. Think it's possible? My favorite magnet user is Cathy Johnston who closes her perfect miniature books/pins and purses (scroll down her class page to see this wonderful design) with magnetic clasps.

Look to the right on the home page. I've added a select list of recommended blogs in the right hand column. I'll keep the list short so as not to overwhelm you. These blogs are quite special. Happy Monday.

    I’m not sure wether these magnets can resist the heat during the curing process. Neodym-magnets (these very strong magnets)only can be heated up to 176 degrees F (80 degrees C).

      If you do end up tryiing to cover the ring, could you share your results? I would love to have a go at coving such a unique item, if it actually works… Bettina’s info is not very promising. 🙁

        I read on the website that these magnets last until up to 250 degrees F
