If you want to make your own components and connectors, check out Ginger Davis Allman's tutorial - Rustic Beads and Components from Polymer Clay. It is a very comprehensive tutorial that is great not only for those with beginners skills, but is an inspirational starting point for those of you who have been working with clay for some time.. Ginger gives a full list of everything she uses to get "the look" that she does. Her steps are clear and easy to follow, and filled with pictures to help you along. And if you are into instant gratification she downloads it immediately from her etsy site!
As always I can't settle on organic/rustic or shiny/bling so I did a set of each!
