If you like to make art and are looking for a new surface to create tiny bits of art, try this technique for making your own polymer clay cabochons featured in the book Polymer Clay 101: Master Basic Skills and Techniques Easily through Step-by-Step Instruction. I plan on using this technique to fix a few pieces of jewelry that are missing some gems, as I bet I can make something that will coordinate at least in color!

Angela Mabray first happened upon polymer clay in a toy store. While she quickly realized it wasn't just for kids, she still feels a childlike joy each time she finds something new to do with polymer clay. She writes about polymer clay at www.craftygoat.com.
