I hand-form every piece of polymer clay jewelry.  All colors are original colors of clay, there is no paint applied.  I use several techniques including caning, engraving, weaving, layering, and many others for which I don’t have names.  I add beads and wires to complement clay work.  Ear wires and wires are sterling silver; necklaces are either sterling silver, 19 strands stainless steel Beadalon, or rubber. It was a fund raising activity for my temple that got me into polymer clay in 2004.  It is a long story with lots of twists and turns.  In 2007 I opted to do art/craft full time.  I used to worked as an environmental researcher in Oak Ridge, TN for 6 years so you know I glow in the dark! Polymer is durable when handled properly.  It should be kept from pointed or sharp objects that may scratch or cut the surface.  It is flexible to a certain degree and is unlikely to break (but not impossible) when dropped.   A long period of exposure to alcohol may do some damages to polymer, hence it's better to put the jewelry on after spraying hair products and perfume.  I have never done anything special to clean the polymer except rinsing it with water when it starts collecting dust.
