Attention: I futzed around with this video so much that I forgot an important mention: you bake it one more time before putting in the inside sheet.
This is another tutorial that is uploadedin two parts because of the complexity of the subject. This first part detailed the basic concepts and demonstratesd how to make a simple pendant in Navajo style. The second part demonstrates how to make a Navajo style cuff bracelet with traditional symbols and decorations.
I thought of making this tutorial because many polymer clay people are interested in doing works in various styles, and the Navajo silver jewelry is always a favorite. It is to help others make flawless creations and develop their skill.
