Book Review: Enchanted Adornments by Cynthia Thornton

I finally received my copy of Enchanted Adornments by Cynthia Thornton. What a wonderfully inspiring book 🙂 The projects are fun, whimsical and I want to try them all. LOL I sure wish I still worked with silver clay. There are several projects that really caught my eye. Especially Mirabelle’s Locket which is on the cover of the book.

Don’t fret my polymer clay loving pals 🙂 There are many projects for you too. My favorites are The Window of the Heart pendant and the Sculptural Scrimshaw Collar.

I know a lot of you are getting into using resin in your jewelry designs. The book has some fun projects to cover that addiction, too. Take a look at these adorable Woodland Wings !!

These pictures are just as teaser. The book has so much more to offer. You can get the book on Amazon.com for $16.47. That’s more than 30% off the suggested retail price of $24.95.

My Facebook Friends Feature Artist – Laurel Steven

Each Friday I am going to do my best to feature a polymer clay artist from my Facebook Friends. Today is the very first installment. I hope you enjoy 🙂

Every artist has their own style and Laurel Steven has brought out an eclectic design in her work. Take a look at these wonderful lockets and toggles.


Laurel had some of the coolest pens I’ve ever seen !! These are faux stone and wood.


Speaking of stone……. I can’t believe these rocks ain’t real !

And you must check out the hinged box necklaces.

I could stop here, but I won’t 🙂 I just had to show these pendants. The transfer work is exceptional.
