Budding Jewellery Maker?

I have definitely got the jewellery making bug with  Friendly Plastic (FP).
I have been playing with it with the new Kampa Griddle, which is great. I use it with both dry and wet!
I use an old non stick 2lb loaf tin half filled with water on the griddle and turn the thermostat up to 4, and there is still space to put a piece of silicone sheet as well so I can use both wet and dry! You have to keep and eye on the dry heated FP to make sure it doesn't get too hot, but you can tell when its ready by the surface texture of the FP.

I have some Artemboss metal, both brass and pewter so have tried to combine both the FP and the metal.
So far I have only used the Pewter. The idea for the round one was from Linda Petersons FP video on bailles and bezels

Dragon stamp from Creative Expressions
The pewter was cut on the Big Shot using Spellbinders nestabilities and a thin piece of card was sandwiched between the front and back pieces to give it a bit more strength.

Here are more of my latest creations with  FP.

Designed using peel offs

Pendant for someone born in the Chinese year of the Monkey

The Red diamond with the silver hearts and teardrops is the scrap left after cutting the hearts and teardrops used in the other earrings and pendants here!

I think Dianne has enough FP Jewellery now so I think  I need to find a market for these!!!!
