A few of my pieces are now featured in the cases at Pas Jewelry in Cranberry, PA.

If you're familiar with the area, you should definitely check it out. The jeweler is the sweetest man alive and if he isn't super busy, he'll gladly talk to you. :]

I feel so accomplished.

Polymer clay use

Lately I've been trying to get more detailed with my polymer clay creations. I think I succeeded with one of them.

I made the shape of the fish and it took a while to make all of the little small pieces into scales, but I think the effect was worth it. I really enjoyed making this, so I hope it does well in my etsy shop.

My father bought my mother and I gold bracelets for Christmas one year and we've kept in contact with the jeweler because he is the sweetest man in the world. He owns his own jewelry shop not too far from my parent's house. Anyway, we dropped by the other day because I said I would give him a poem that I've written.

While we were there my mom jokingly showed him a bracelet that I made and he told me to bring in some more of my pieces.

He might put them in the cases of his shop.

I don't remember the last time I've been so scared/excited.

He has been doing this for 30 years and he actually complimented me on my work. It'll be interesting to see how this turns out. It could be the start of something for me- besides just selling on Etsy.

Wish me luck all of you out there in blog land.

I've fallen in love with little polymer clay rings ... I'm sure there will be many more to come.

I was experimenting with rolling the clay and saw that it looked sort of like the center of a blossom... and before I knew it I came up with this

I'm pretty happy with it. I mixed a few colors so it's swirly. I put it up on my etsy... the flowers are really fun to make. Expect more :D

I'm a sucker for cute things with buggy eyes

Such as Wall E ... but also, I've recently made some polymer clay creations that also have buggy eyes (chickie earrings etc). Now I also have a ring.

Polymer Clay Spree

It's true... many people have told me that polymer clay is addicting. I didn't believe them and now it's too late!

I purchased some ring blanks off of etsy ... I'm hoping to create some nice rings by attaching polymer clay blossoms. This should be interesting.

Fall is just around the corner!

And along with that comes my favorite holiday: Halloween.

So I thought I would get a jump start on that and I made some pumpkins out of polymer clay. They turned out rather nicely so I made them into earrings!

These cuties can be found in my Etsy Shop

My Garden

The garden at my parents house is full of sunflowers and huge elephant ear plants... along with that also comes bugs.

I think bugs are adorable... and thus they were the inspiration for my latest creation:

I recently listed the item in my Etsy shop. So if you're interested in it, it can be found there :D
