Alexandra Buga is a polymer clay creator residing in Drama, Greece. She has an academic background in Linguistics and Art Therapy, but her interest in art, design and folklore, as well as her sheer love for texture and color, led her to the creative path. She launched her jewelry brand BLACK TROPICANA in 2018 and her newfound hobby became a full-time occupation. www.etsy.com/shop/BlackTropicana
Materials and tools:
• Pardo polymer clay of 3 colors – pearl white, blue, black or obsidian.
• LC Czextruder with 2 extensions from LC Disk 5.
• LC Slicer (or LC Mini Slicer).
• LC Pasta Machine and an acrylic roller.
Mixing with a darker color prepare three different shades of blue.
Run each shade of blue through the Czextruder.
Cover extrusions gently with a thin sheet of white. You can reduce some rolls to make different sizes.
Squeeze the rolls creating a cane. Here, I cut the cane into 3 pieces and merged them together.
Slice the cane making thin sheets and cut the desired shapes for your jewelry.
Bake the polymer clay according to the manufacturer.
Sand and assemble the pieces. Voila! You have ready to wear earrings.
