Does your gemstone pendant look anemic?  You can jazz up the design by decorating the gemstone focal with polymer clay!

The first tutorial is by Yvonne Williams who is a fantastic jewelry designer and artist. What she does is to add polymer clay to the top of a rough pointed quartz crystal so that it becomes a setting for the gemstone.

She uses liquid polymer clay in between the crystal and the main polymer clay piece before going to add embellishments and textures.  One cool tip is how she uses a thick coil of polymer clay as a base to hold the pointed quartz crystal while she works.

Yvonne also adds small rhinestones around the main piece.  She uses liquid polymer clay as "glue" but she also adds several polymer clay embellishments to bezel these small crystals.

Sandy of KeepsakeCrafts shared this tutorial on how a few sculptured pieces of polymer clay can really dress up plain gemstone beads.
