The September meeting of the Central Mississippi Polymer Clay Guild will be on Saturday, September 15, 2012, at 10:00 a.m. at the Pearl Library, Pearl, Mississippi. We've spent a lot of time learning how to make different kinds of beads with our polymer clay but if you are like me, you now have a nice collection of beads but aren't real comfortable putting them together in a necklace, bracelet, earrings, etc.  This month Debbie is going to walk us though the basics of jewelry construction so we can confidently make something with the beads we've made!

Just as a reminder, be sure to dress in layers.  We have no control over the temperature in the room where we meet and sometimes it is hot, sometimes cold.  Best to be prepared.  Also, if you've made a name tag, but sure to wear it since we have several new members (and some of us old members don't have a great memory for names!!!

Now for our supply list:

CLAY:

Scrap clay
Clay color of your choice to cover a rod (guild will supply the rod)
Baked Polymer Clay Beads in all sizes and shapes
Assorted glass or metal beads to mix and match with the polymer clay beads in various sizes and shapes (don't go crazy if you don't have a lot of these, we'll bring some to share)

Be sure to bring your normal travel kit with a minimum of your pasta machine, clear roller, clay blade, ceramic tile or other work surface, baby wipes.
