This is our annual repost from a holiday ornament workshop we taught online in a previous year. I can’t wait to unpack my holiday ornaments because all of these samples are now within those boxes and I’m looking forward to seeing them.

This technique is a hit maker! It has just the right level of “new,” but yet is “familiar.” The final pendants are the perfect balance of the principle; MAYA (Most Advanced Yet Acceptable). I think it is the familiar look of porcelain that makes these pieces so very likeable. It is a look that people know and love.

Create a Faceted Crystal Clay Charm Tutorial! I’m pretty pleased that we found a way to create a faceted insert to drop into Nunn Design Bezels. It is a challenge to find a mold that will be a perfect fit for the selection of bezels we offer, but this solution allows you to make your own mold! Once you have the mold, you can create a faceted insert in any color of Crystal Clay that you want to use. You can also use the mold to create resin inserts!

How to Use Crystal Clay in a Nunn Design Bezel Over the years I have developed techniques for placing mixed Crystal Clay within Nunn Design Bezels. These techniques have become habits, like brushing my teeth daily and reaching for the turn signal when I’m driving my car (which btw is a 1986 Saab Turbo!). In this tutorial, we cover some of the habits that make my experience of working with Crystal Clay faster and more efficient. Even for you experienced Crystal Clay users, I hope that you find
Jewelry Inspiration! Colorized Crystal Clay with PearlEx Powder! What I love about this technique, Colorized Crystal Clay with Jacquard Pearl Ex Powdered Pigments, featured on the Nunn Design Blog - is that one designer’s pieces will come out contemporary in style, while another will be elegant.

Crystal Clay is easy to mix and has a working time of up to 2 hours.

Jewelry Inspiration! Sculpted Crystal Clay with Colorized Resin! I personally LOVE the fired porcelain look this technique adds! There are several steps, but they are easy to learn and the results are stunning. On the Nunn Design Blog we offer two different tutorials on how to create this look.
