Amor! The Newest CaBezel mold has arrived!!!

Now available.
The newest CaBezel mold Amor has arrived! I choose to use the Spanish word for love.
It features 4 totally different shaped and sized hearts from traditional to primitive,  there is even one small heart great for charms or earrings.
For anyone not familiar with the CaBezels...each shape has both a "bezel" and "cabochon" component.
Easy to use! Never buy commercially made bezels again if you don't want to!. Use scrap clay for the bezels. Once they are baked you can make them look like metal by applying Guilders Paste to them.

New Texture Stamps!

Here are 2 new designs by Ranger.  Both will get us in the mood for the upcoming holiday season (whether we're ready for it or not :-)

Here is what Ranger says these textures are great for.  Of course, we also know how well they work with polymer clay!!

Ranger Melt Art™ Texture Treads Snow Flurries
Product Information:

The nice thing about these textures is that half of the sheet has a positive impression of this pattern while the other half has a negative impression of the pattern.
