Arizona’s Amber Radosevich was all about bugs – making caterpillars, arachnids, butterflies and such in polymer.
When she started experimenting with translucent polymer, her work took a turn to amber and imitative glass. She’s come up with some innovative methods and clever solutions for making hollow beads and she’s not done playing yet.
If translucent beads have been calling you, take a look at her tutorials. I bought one tutorial to test and now I want to know all her tricks. Headpins? Disks? Bumpy beads? She continues to turn out tutorials. Here’s her Etsy shop and her Facebook page.
Hope you didn’t have other plans for the weekend because you may be distracted.

Wonderful work, Amber! And thank you for this precious information about tutorials on imitative glass, Cynthia! I know what I’ll be busy with this weekend….
Thank you, Sonya! I hope you have fun with it 🙂
OMG! I can’t wait to try these techniques! I thought I’d just “glance” at this before leaving for work. I’ll be thinking & designing in my head all day!!!
I’d love to see what you come up with, Cathy!

Saw these on the ClayLessons site and thought they were EXTREMELY clever–innovations abound!
I’m glad you liked them, Randee 🙂 Your Draconite pendants are amazing!
I had to buy it as well last week – just out of curiosity – it’s a great tutorial – very clever 😉
Thank you, Bettina 🙂

What a wonderfully novel and creative way of using liquid Kato clay, Amber. I ordered 2 tutes and they are so well written and illustrated including pointing out possible pitfalls and problems. It takes faux glass another step beyond Sharon Solly’s work, she created fabulous solid beads. I can’t wait to get stuck into it once I can see my bench again.

one word , WOW
Why doesn’t someone post a free tutorial on you tube? Is she the only one that knows how to do this!
I don’t offer them as a free tutorial on Youtube, but I did recently completely redo both of my faux glass hollow bead tutorials with new pictures/instructions – they’re both available in my Etsy shop (I changed the shop name to CraftWithClay in 2021) ?
