A Twist On The Swirl

Ali di Libellula AKA Marina Lombardi of Italy is a clayer to watch. Her style is so sweet and lady like. I adore these Swirl Lentils she embellished with flowers, vines and dots. She had made pendants and bookmarks with the beads and I have to show my favorites.

Gera Scott Rocks !!

Hee hee 🙂 Couldn’t resist. Gera Scott unveiled a new bracelet design. She calls them Vesuvius BeachStone Bracelets. They truly look like pieces of stone. It was for sale it her Etsy shop, but unfortunately (or is that fortunately) it sold already. Beautiful work Gera 🙂

Breast Cancer Awareness Month & Polymer Clay

I’ve been noticing a lot of wonderful projects featuring the Pink Ribbon. I want to thank all the artists for using their talent to remind everyone about Breast Cancer Awareness.

The Ears Have It

While browsing my favorite blogs, I saw a picture of some gorgeous earring by Sophie Arzalier. She is one talented lady!

This of course led me to a Flickr search for more earrings.

US Clayers: Pre-order Bettina’s New Book !!!!


Polkadot Creations is hoping to get enough pre-orders of Bettina Welker’s new book, Edle Schmuck-Unikate & Accessoires aus Polymer-Clay, to make it worth importing to the US. The book is in German, but it will come with an English translation of the project section. There are also translations in French and Spanish available.

I’m saving my pennies to get my pre-order in. How about you? 🙂

Fairy Sculptures by Linda Griego

I know we have all seen a lot of amazing fantasy sculptures over the years, but I just had to share this artist with you all. A link to her Ebay bio was shared at the PCC Forum and I hesitated to click on it. Thankfully my curiosity got the better of me. Her name is Linda Griego, her shop is called Tattered Fairies and I am a huge fan now. 🙂


Take a look at more of her work in this online gallery.

I’m looking for colorful scrap polymer clay

I am looking for someone to trade their colorful scrap polymer clay (cane ends or trimmings with little translucent) for new 2 oz packs of Premo. I have 6 pounds to trade. 2 oz new for 4 oz scrap sound fair?? If I can find a single person to trade with, so I only have to ship one box, I will throw in 8 white Fimo Soft and approx 8 oz of white liquid Sculpey as a bonus.

Waiting to hear from you 🙂

Another Helpful Tip from Parole de Pate

This is one I just have to try ! Take a strip of craft metal (she used Art Emboss by Amaco, but I already have some aluminum flashing) and bend it into a shape and embedded the metal into clay and bake it to make a cookie cutter !!! I imagine you will have to glue the metal into the clay since clay won’t attach itself to metal without glue 🙂
