Helen Breil Polymer Clay Molds Review
One of the most interesting aspects of designing your own jewelry is experimenting with different textures. Shapes are one thing, but being able to feel the individual grooves and patterns of your custom jewelry adds a touch of originality and beauty that is hard to replicate. Antelope Beads is so proud to carry a line of Helen Breil polymer clay molds and stamps so you can create your own intricate and beautiful jewelry.
Ranging in price from $12.99-$26.00, our selection of Helen Breil texture stamps offers an affordable and fun way to add a contemporary and energetic element to your jewelry creations. From floral designs to geometric shapes, zentangles, and everything in between, these polymer clay stamps are made of high-quality rubber and measure in at 4”x5” with a textured area slightly smaller than that. All of our Helen Breil texture stamps are flexible, washable, and can adapt to use with any type of soft clay you might be using as well as paper and fabrics.
Try using a stamp in a pressed-in technique like the example below to give your jewelry creation some added layers and dimensions, or try stamping the design on the surface of your jewelry like the example below and to the right. This technique gives your jewelry an added visual element without drawing attention away from the rich, bold colors of the piece. Regardless of your design technique, Helen Breil’s texture stamps offer a truly eye-catching choice for custom, handmade jewelry.
