Antique Jewel Replicas in Polymer

Need a break from creating canes and mixing colors? Take a look at the regal bezels and Roman settings that London’s Kotomi Yamamura fashions from gold polymer clay. Her fall line of antique replicas includes a Tudor and a Roman series that retain the chunky, mystical appeal of ancient jewelry.

Though there’s not much information on her technique in English, Yamamura’s sketches give you a good idea of how she works.

Every once in a while I thumb through my copy of "Creating Your Own Antique Jewelry" which is full of photos of antique jewels and ideas on how to replicate them using polymer clay.
