FoldFormed Polymer Clay Jewelry Tutorials

By on Monday, July 03, 2017 5 Comments

Long time blog readers will remember my features on metalsmith Charles Lewton-Brain's groundbreaking foldforming techniques (see links below).  But you too can get the look of fold formed metal without any metal working!  Check out Sona Grigoryan's awesome silk fold inspired polymer clay pendant tutorial.

She uses thin sheets of metallic colored polymer clay and lots of patience to carefully create and place the folds in just the right manner.  Then it is a matter of getting the colors where you want.

Imagine!  No hammering or torching needed!




She also created a pair of rose polymer clay earrings which also uses polymer clay fold forming.

  1. I want to give this a try. I think it's going to be a huge test of my lack of patience... :0)

    1. I also think that it is hard to decide on what folds do look good.

  2. OMG, it is so simple but I have never thought of form folding in terms of clay before
