People using my stamps in their art :)

I just wanted to share a few pictures of some beautiful pieces of jewelry where the artist has used one of my clear stamps as texture. I feel like a proud parent LOL

First is my pal Janie in Alabama. She runs a shop called Life Art Designs over at Etsy. She says is getting ready for an arts and crafts show on Dauphin island on April 16th. If you are in the area you should drop by and take a look at her fabulous work. Janie has combines polymer clay with fine silver clay (.999% silver) to make this gorgeous piece using my Asian Script clear stamp.

The next person is one of my faithful Etsy shoppers 🙂 Her shop is call Mindfulmatters. She used my ever popular Vintage Circuit Board clear stamp to create this wonderful pendant.

She also made this intricate barrette using my Runes clear stamp.

Wandie Ortiz has a shop called Bijoux Hibou at Etsy and she used my Branches clear stamp to make this very colorful pendant, which I just love, that has a glazed ceramic look.

Here we have Kristen from Canada. Another of my Etsy buyers. (Thanks you Etsy) Her Etsy shop is called Wasabeads. Kristen used my Vintage Circuit Board clear stamp to make this great pendant and earring set.

You can find over 70 clear stamps currently listed in my Artfire and Etsy shops. Please drop by and take a look. 🙂 I am positive you will find them interesting and unique. I design my stamps with polymer clay in mind, but they can be used on a multitude of surfaces. If you can stamp on it, they will work 🙂

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.

For all you texture junkies from your favorite enabler

Just found out Judi-Kins has a new product called Clay Squisher !!!!!! OMG are they freaking cool 🙂 10 different rubber texture mats with 6 different designs on each mat. I am in heaven. LOL

Excerpt from the web site says:
“Can be used with polymer clay, PMC, paper clay, shrink plastic and more. Set of 6 designs on each rubber mat. Made from a highly dense black rubber. Designs are 2 1/4 inches square. Sheets measure 7 x 5-1/2 inches and have punched holes for convenient binder storage.”

They retail for $9 each and I can only assume there will be a binder we can purchase to store them in.

Take a look at the designs.

Facebook Friends Feature Artist Ariane Freisleben

I was not familiar with the work of Ariane Freisleben until I became a Facebook member. I spent a good amount of time browsing her Flickr gallery, oooohing and awwwwwing over her work. Usually I can find a piece in an artist’s collection that really screams “that’s so me” and it quickly becomes my favorite, but I had a very difficult time narrowing it down to just one of Ariane’s pieces. There were just way to many that jumped out at me.

So here are all my favorites 🙂





As you can see I seemed to gravitate towards a neutral pallet. All the better to wear it with anything in my wardrobe 🙂

You can see all of Ariane’s work in her Flickr Gallery

Polymer & PMC = Perfect Pairing

I used to play around a bit with silver metal clay and I love the look of mixing the polymer clay with the fine silver. These pendants were my first try at combining the two products.
