PMC & Polymer Clay Leaf Pendant

This is a PMC technique which allows the combination of PMC and Polymer Clay without the use of glue. This is also know as the Reverse Bevel Bezel and has been championed and perfected by Linda Bernstein who is a USA Senior PMC Instructor. It is just  one of the projects in the CCIP program which comprises 2 levels of certification, that I teach in Sydney and my Bellingen Home Studio. You can read more about the Certification Program on my website.
