Finally, I found mini screws at our local hobby shop. I was really so happy to see the sizes that I need. I have so much filigree that I can mix and match and put together with these screws instead of polymer clay. Here are some of the pieces I made using the filigrees and screws.

I've been designing lockets for years now. Sometimes I break a locket because of too much experimenting haha! But the broken ones are too precious for me to just throw in the bin. So I just kept them in my stash of recyclable materials. Now, I found a way to use them again. For this tutorial, I just used one half of the broken locket and I'm still thinking of another design for the other half. I treated it like a bezel and thought of pouring resin inside. So here's how I made the seahorse pendant..
You will be needing the following materials...
half of a broken locket (for this one I used a 2 inch oval locket)
Polymer clay (shades of blue, brown and green)
push mold (for this project I used a Lisa Pavelka border mold)
Lisa Pavelka Magic-Gloss
UV lamp (optional)
Pearl-ex pigment powder Gold
