Title: Make Your Own.... Jewelry??? Mid 90s
Post by: Mysstica on Thursday 01 March 2012, 03:27 pm
I saw the episode of Babysitters Club in which Claudia makes jewelry, and it sparked a memory for me. When I was younger, I had a sort of jewelry-making playset. (I don't remember if it stayed soft or hardened or you baked it or what.) I actually am not sure if it was jewelry we were making... but here is what I do know:

*You used a white spongy material (kind of like clay, but airy and springy) to make the jewelry (or whatever it made)
*There was some sort of machine that flattened out the spongy material to a uniform thickness
*It came with really, really fine glitter too add to the spongy material
*I seem to remember there being pictures to transfer to the spongy material

That's it for now. Not much to go on, I know. :P

Was it possibly made by Tyco, Did it have molds or cookie cutter type things? Possibly a zebra and star shapes?

I know that I had that, but I can't think of what it was either! It's pretty much the faintest memory ever!

For some reason, I remember rhinestones. I think.

EDIT: I think it probably was one of the many Jazzy Jewelry playsets by Crayola (1993ish). I remember a set that had the purple plastic shapes, black cord, and wire hoop earrings. And I didn't have many jewelry sets (my others were Lisa Frank Bead Mania and some frosty glass bead sets).

Some of the sets: Glitter Gems, Hip Hoops, Bead Shop, Rollup Beads, Fabulous Frames, and Charm Machine.

Also, found this link:
http://babysittersclub.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=claudiakishi&action=display&thread=3953

Still not sure if this is it, though. I'm definitely remembering a white clay and making it into small flower shapes with a mold and then attaching them to earring backings, etc. And there was glitter and rhinestones. What was this set?!?

Did the machine look like a pinkish purple easy Bake Oven? If it did it may have been a Easy2Do jewelry maker I had one when I was little it came with a white foamy play-doh like material that you put in mold and "cooked" by light bulb in the oven then when it cooled you could paint it and add glitter,jewels etc.

I don't remember a light bulb thing?

Yeah it was called Easy2Do and worked like a easy bake oven my grandma got it for me cause she couldn't find the easy bake oven i asked for. I remember the necklace mold was rather small and the necklaces i made with it ended up on my dolls if they didn't break. The finished jewelry was rather fragile. Unfortunaly I can't find any pics or refances to anywhere any help would be apprecated.

Hmm... that doesn't sound quite right. I remember the jewelry being thick enough and not fragile and I also don't remember a light bulb, BUT I could be wrong! :D

I think Fashion Magic was the thing my neighbor had. We played with it in 1995, but it could have been a earlier set.

Here are some pieces. Do they look familiar?

I feel like I totally had one of these sets. I remember the roller. But I think my clay was all white? I *think* mine had an ocean theme? (starfish, shells?) Looking closer under the "Molding" category, I think I remember the flower. And my set had glitter. And I know that there were clear plastic hair combs for decorating.

I saw those pieces on ebay, but they didn't look familiar, so I didn't post the link. ;) I want to say that the clay came in clear wrap, not a tub. But the clay in the ebay lot isn't Fashion Magic; I think it said it was Crayola. :D

EDIT: Ahhhh, looks like I got that backwards! The clay IS Fashion Magic, but the pieces are Crayola; the pink thing you squeeze together says Crayola on it. ;)

EDIT ... again: *giggle* Okay, so the blue and pink plates are also Fashion Magic. The zig-zag pattern ("W") looks a little familiar, but I'm not so sure.

Did you look at the instruction sheet pdf?

Ahh! Zuse, how do you find this stuff? ;)

I am convinced that it was Fashion Magic. I don't remember any colored clay - only white - but I remember a couple of the pictures on those instruction sheets, it mentions the powdery glittery, and once I saw the string laying in that mold along with the clay, I actually think that that's the one that I had. The real thing tugging at my memory, though, is the "Transfer Sheets." That must have been my favorite part. ;)

Bren41882 it is called the ez 2 do fashion machine. I had one too but only for a brief time as mine didn't work and as I remember was returned to the store but never replaced. I also managed to find a picture of it in an old catalog from sears as remembered it came out in 1992 the same year as the creepy crawlers machine. Here is the picture I found.
