How to make polymer clay jewelry

Learn all the skills you need to make stunning beads and necklaces, as we touch on the basic knowledge of working with Polymer Clay.

Melbourne based Designer + Maker Sheree McCready is the creative behind Polly Collective.  Making contemporary jewellery and sculpted art using Polymer Clay as her core medium.

Lifelong lover of all things artistic and colourful, Sheree has a background in Professional Photography, after moving to Melbourne from NZ she was looking for an escape from the photography scene and came across polymer clay. After months and months of research, lots of trial and error and some really gnarly creations this self-taught polymer clay artist finally found her niche and some wicked therapy for her creative soul!

Using a signature pattern of squiggles and dots as an emphasis to compliment the simple shapes, bold colourways and contemporary style. With a bit of good old makers hustle and whole lotta heart Sheree has cultivated her brand, she is now stocked in retail stores across Australia and NZ, sharing her love of the evolving polymer clay craft by teaching skill-based workshops like this, and continuing to grow and develop her little craft baby Polly Collective!

If you can cope with a strong kiwi accent, you get excited when you see colourful stuff you can play with and squish, you love metallic and glitter, you want to get some serious inspiration and craft it up….you should definitely book onto a workshop with Sheree. Her open book, honest and down to earth approach will have you hooked.

The group was easy going. The hosts are organised and knew there craft. Personally I like a smaller group but Sheree and Cody attended to everyone. A good amount of tips to take away . Good support. Well done. P.s yes value for money.

Sheree was a great instructor! She was very friendly, funny and knowledgeable which made for a great morning of bead making. The class had all the equipment and clays you could have needed and I was able to make a few pieces of jewellery during that time which also meant the session was great value for money. I left the class feeling inspired to create more polymer clay creations and would recommend the session to anyone interested in this style of jewellery.

What a brilliant class. Lots of tips and tricks, and all the equipment needed to bring your ideas to life. Sheree is an hilarious and talented teacher, couldn’t ask for better.

What a lovely relaxing, fun way to spend a Sunday morning. The class was very well organised with a very talented and knowledgeable teacher. Sheree was very easy to listen too and kept us laughing and inspired, I can’t wait to start creating.

Sheree’s polymer clay classes are always fun and great value for money. Having the wonderful Cody from Blackbird & Violet there too meant an extra pair of expert hands to help. Huge selection of clays to choose from and a goodie box of things to take home. Would definitely recommend!
