Fiona Abel-Smith: Friday Featured Artist (on Saturday)

Sorry I am a day late with this post. The orders for the Helen Breil Silk Screens overwhelmed me just a bit. 🙂 I am going to be very bust this weekend.

This weeks artist makes the most amazing boxes I have ever seen ! Her name is Fiona Abel-Smith and I am in awe. They are entirely polymer clay ! !

Look at the details involved. Stunning ! Absolutely stunning !

Even the inside is finished with mokume gane. WOW!

Here is a picture of just the lid to one of her boxes. I can not even imagine how many hours of work this took to complete just the lid.

Oh, and Fiona makes dragons and jewelry too. 🙂

You can see more of Fiona’s work in her Flickr Gallery.

Incredible Canes !!!!

Wandering around Facebook I noticed one of my Friends had shared a link to one of their Friends. The link took me to a blog called Polymer Clay Shed. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t seen this blog yet, because I was definitely missing out.

The artists name is Carola Greiser and she goes by CraftsByCag. She’s a member of PCAGOE (Polymer Clay Artist Guild of Etsy). Carola has one Etsy shop for her jewelry , which has some amazing bead for sale and a second shop for her other items, like crochet hooks and pens. But what I really want to share with you all is Carola’s cane work. It is nothing short of stunning !!!! I sooooooo want the 2 purple background one in the first picture 🙂

That is just a tiny fraction of the cane work you can see in Carola’s Flickr Photo Gallery. Enjoy and try not to drool 😉

Where does the time go? And Facebook Friends Featured Artist: Noelia Contreras

I can’t believe it’s been 9 days since my last post. Seems like I was just here. It’s those *bleeping* Facebook games I tell you. They are addictive. LOL

It’s time to feature a Facebook Artist again. I haven’t done this in a while and need to get back to my weekly feature schedule.

This weeks artist is Noelia Contreras 🙂
Noelia is one talented and versatile clayer. Not only does she make the yummiest looking mini food



But she canes



and makes jewelry too




She also does some fabulous bead work, but you’ll have to wander on over to Noelia’s Flickr Gallery to see it and the rest of her incredible work. 🙂
She also has an Etsy Shop
and a blog you might like to follow.

A Master Of Complex Face Canes

Julie Eakes’ face canes are in one word outstanding !! She is the person who got all the attention a while back with her Obama cane. She was able to gift one of the pins she made to Senator Kathy Sgambati from New Hampshire, who Julie met at the Cabin Fever Festival. There is a picture of the two of them at Julie’s blog.

Be sure to take a few minuted to browse her Photobucket gallery. There are many canes shown that will amaze you. If I could have half of Julie’s talent I would consider it a blessing.
