‘Mica Gems’ Polymer Clay Tutorial Kit

$15.00 $135.00


Our new Tutorial Kits are your ‘Workshop in a Box’!
They are perfect for combating boredom, learning something new or expanding your creative skills.

The idea behind these boxes is that you’ll be able to experience a workshop without needing any technology (whilst I’m thankful for it, sometimes I feel I need to just ‘switch off’) and very little (or nothing else!), other than what’s in the box, to complete the lesson/project. All from the comfort of your own home.

Our tutors have many years experience in their chosen mediums, in most cases over 15 years.

New boxes will be released regularly and we are also looking into launching boxes later in the year with video links so you can learn more in depth/technical skills.

These boxes also make fabulous gifts!


Did you know that by purchasing one of these boxes you are not only supporting our Australian small business, you are also supporting numerous Aussie businesses. We do our best to support Australian businesses ourselves (and in particular Aussie Small Biz). Our printing is done through our local printer, stickers and tissue paper are sourced through an Aussie small biz, boxes are also made and sold right here in Australia. 90% of the materials/equipment in this box are also sourced/purchased through Australian businesses.




This ‘Mica Gems’ tutorial shows you how to create beautiful stud earrings using polymer clay.

In this box you’ll find a comprehensive 13 page tutorial booklet in which Dani will show you how to create her popular Mica Gem earrings. There is also a mini tutorial included on how to condition polymer clay.
Many of the techniques in this tutorial can be applied to other projects.

An extra ‘add-on’ mica gems mould is now available at a discounted price for those who have purchased a Mica Gems Tutorial Kit.  This is only available for those who have purchased a kit. At this time it is not available for general public purchase and will be refunded if purchased without the purchase of a kit.
Thank you for your understanding and please contact us with any queries.


Skill Level:
This project/kit is for students of all skill levels.
