Kathryn says, "Comprehensive course. Takes you from conditioning the clay to completing a pendant. Lots of information for beginners and I like that the project does not need lots of special, hard to find 'stuff' to complete.... The demo's are done at a comfortable pace, you can work right along with Maha... The mold making is done without using the somewhat expensive, two part mold making products, and it's something you already have on hand! ... The video camera is well positioned, you can see everything that she is doing. The audio is at a comfortable level and she is easy to understand. In my opinion that is a very good course for a beginner and still has information that someone at an intermediate level would find useful."

When I first sculpted an elephant pendant; like the one you can see when you preview the course video, I was so excited about being able to make it out of such a raw material like polymer clay. But at the same time, I couldn’t imagine that I’ve to do the same work over and over again every time I need to make this same pendant for someone. So I needed to figure out how I can repeat making a pendant like this with minimum effort and time.
Then, it came to me the idea of making a mold out of the shape itself. And by doing so, I was able to make replicates out of the same shape easily and rapidly. And this is what I’ll teach you to do in this course.
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to make three projecting pendants and their molds using polymer clay; a pendant with an elephant, a butterfly, and a swan. And by making the molds, you’ll be able to make as many replicates as you wish in an easy and productive way. Not to mention, that you’ll be able to apply what you’ll learn to make your own jewelry designs using polymer clay.
So the course will explain to you a three-step process for designing a 2D projecting pendant;
first, making the original shape,
then making a mold out of it,
and finally making a replicate.
And before starting to teach you this process, I’ll give you the basic knowledge about polymer clay, so if you’re a beginner you’ll have it all in this course.
And if you have prior knowledge about polymer clay, you can skip the introductory section of the course. And maybe you’d watch it later!
One final thing, this course is not like any other free online tutorials; as you’ll have my experience and all that I’ve learned from my mistakes, and that will save you much time and effort. Plus, you’ll have me answering all your inquiries.
I hope you’ll enjoy this course and find it useful. Now, preview some of the course's videos and if you have any questions you can send to me.
Who this course is for:
- Those who love to make things by hand. Or anyone who'd like to make jewelry to sell.
- Those who are interested in jewelry design.
- Beginners and intermediates in polymer clay jewelry design.
Hi, my name is Maha Atef, I’m the founder of Selsal Online Gift Store and Art School. I’m a self-taught polymer clay artist and ink markers illustrator with a pharmacy degree! I make jewelry, charms, and home décor using polymer clay and ink markers. And as I’m keen on sharing what I’ve learn in these fields, I’ve started "Selsal School" to give workshops and online courses for those who would like to make things by hand or those who want to start small businesses based on making handmade and hand-drawn products.
Through all Selsal School online courses, I start by teaching you the basics then I show you, through step-by-step approaches, how do I make my designs in polymer clay and my drawings in ink markers. These courses are not like any other free online tutorials; as you’ll have my experience and all what I’ve learned from my mistakes, and that will save you much time and effort. Plus, you’ll have me answering all your inquiries.
Thanks for visiting my profile and I'm looking forward to seeing you in one of my courses.
