A new creation

I just love this piece...looks a little like a coral snake but it isn't. It is a new listing in my Etsy shop. I put it on a plain choker wire so it can easily be removed and made into whatever creation you might want to make out of it. You can then reuse the choker for your own purpose.

Polymer clay...a versatile medium

I absolutely love working with polymer clay because it is such a verstile medium. There is a whole rainbow of colors to choose from not to mention the vast array of colors that you can combine and blend. I love experimenting with the various hues not to mention patterns, whose carefully planed conbinations, never cease to surprise me.

I think that my favorite pieces of work are the "accidents". You can see all my creations at Etsy.

Little Bottles

I have enjoyed making these whimsical little bottles. They are so much fun to make and I never know how they will turn out until they are finished. Here is a new one that I just listed in my Etsy shop.

Yellow, gold and purple polymer clay has been combined to make the vivid, shimmery pattern on this small Potion Bottle.

This is a glass bottle covered with polymer clay and the stopper is made from solid polymer clay.

This 3 1/2 inch potion bottle will hold your favorite oil or scent and a snake is coiled around the outside to guard it. Very striking.

It has been signed and dated and 3 coats of non toxic glaze are applied to enhance depth of color and for protection.

Sculpture as Jewelry

     I love to create sculpture that can be worn as jewelry. I have some wonderful small sculptures that sit on my shelf and I love looking at them but being able to wear them would be even better. This is why I decided to create wearable OOAK small sculpture.
I design my pieces so that they are comfortable, unique and each one is signed and dated.
This is a large and very unique pendant. Completely handsculpted from gold, silver and black polymer clay, it measures 3 inches across and almost 4 inches long. This necklace is choker length at 16 1/2 inches. It is strung using a double faux leather cord, silver and tuquoise wooden beads. It closes with a lobster clasp. The pendant is a OOAK and is signed and dated on the back. The whole piece has been sealed with non toxic acrylic glaze for superior snine and protection.
     This piece is in my Etsy shop.
   Bright colors, a sense of whimsy, magical things and designs that fuel the imagination are what I enjoy creating with my polymer clay. For me, anything goes. I create whatever comes to mind at the moment.
Potion bottles are my newest creations that I list and sell in my Etsy shop. They are small glass vessels, covered in polymer clay with handmade stoppers. Each bottle is signed and dated and a OOAK.
I have also been working on some sculpted snakes for jewelry makers to use in their own designs. They are also available in my Etsy shop. These little sculptures are OOAk, signed and dated.
