Can someone tell me what these bead caps are made from? Are they PMC or metal formed?

You can do either, but most are metal formed.

Thanks. Just wasn't sure. I haven't done either but thinking about trying PMC. Just haven't taken the big step yet. Maybe I'll practice with polymer clay first...LOL

Here are some I did in silver PMC:

I use large gemstone beads (on a tray of lampwork, no less) to form the caps while the clay dries:

Is Ronnie's PMC or metal?

Laura, those are so cool, thanks for sharing. I so want to try PMC. I have a larger kiln just sitting there waiting to be used for that.

So... here it is 4.5 years later, I cannot find my copy of this tutorial, and Ronnie Renee doesn't seem to have an Etsy shop. Does anyone know how to contact her?

Is that Ronnie Winterringer? If so, try Facebook

Edited to say: I have no clue if they are the same person, but I have that thought from somewhere.
