  • Hello,
    After many years of making life like flower jewellery out of polymer clay I would like to branch out into silk flower making. Unfortunately, it is a rare craft this days. Could anybody suggest any books, courses, teachers and equipment suppliers for this craft? I am particularly interested in Japanese set of soldering irons with special copper ball attachments for shaping petals and leaves. I would be interested in buying old tools for this craft. Are there websites which I missed?
    I hope you can help.

  • Hi Maria, and whilst I can not help you with your search for help with regards to making silk flowers I am very interested in chatting with you regarding your clay jewellery. I make jewellery using polymer clay and would welcome contacts with other crafters.

    I look forward to hearing from you.
