More Toggle Designs

I've been working on some new designs for my upcoming Treasures Bracelet Class.
This one is made by rolling fresh PMC onto a carved polymer texture plate. I like the way a small detail taken from the texture plate becomes a whole, more than the sum of it's parts.

This toggle is made by carving directly in the dry PMC. I rolled out clay to 5 cards, cut out my shapes, dried and lightly sanded them. I used a 1.5 mm U gauge (micro carving tool) to carve the design onto both sides (all the carving scraps are reconstituted). The toggle pieces were fired flat on a kiln shelf and curved on a ring mandrel after firing.

There are still some spots remaining in the Class!


  1. I've admired your work for many years. You are one of the "greats" in both fields. Thanks for your blog.(I started polymer clay about 12 years ago, and metal clay 11 years ago.)

  2. Fabulous new toggle clasps, Celie! Thanks for sharing, as always!

  3. Beautiful addition to an already wonderful class project!! Thank you for showing us!
