My New Custom Creation

This is a new addition to my customized polymer clay items. It was actually the brainchild of one of my customers, but I had been wanting to do this for a long time. I am glad I finally took the time to create it - because I am thrilled with the results. This bracelet can be made using 6 photos. I can make the tiles either round or square and make the color or black and white or sepia. I have added crystals to each tile that can be customized to match a birthstone. I just think this would make a great gift for grandmothers :)

Please check it out at my Etsy Shop

Etsy Artists On Clay - Featuring H.R. LoBue

I have been so lucky to be able to work with such an amazing photographer to add to my list of artists on clay. From her profile on Etsy.....

My love for photography grew out of a desire to capture the landscape of human emotion encapsulated in its raw, honest form, exposing the vulnerability of being human. As a mother of two girls, I am often transported to scenes from childhood. Childhood is often the genesis of emotional expression. As we transcend suddenly into adulthood our guarded emotional being is hidden from view. Through digital manipulation of photo lab technology, I strive to create a feeling from another time, another dream, transporting the viewer to a memory forgotten.

Her work is truly magical. Please check out her shop on Etsy:
Also, check out the pendants made using her photographs in my Etsy shop

1,000 Sales on Etsy - Yay

I am a little late in posting this since I am now up to 1,034 Sales !!! I just cannot believe it, really I am so very excited to have reached this goal. I would look at other Etsy sellers and say, "I wonder if I will ever reach 1,000 sales". So if you are another seller, and you are getting frustrated - don't - you will reach your goals. I am happy to say that I am working on several new projects that will be great for the upcoming Holiday Season. Lots of custom items and One of a Kind Pieces. Again - many thanks to my family, friends and especially my customers who have helped me reach this goal. I will continue to make sure my customers are happy with their product and the service they receive from my shop.

I'm Famous !!!

OK-Well maybe not that famous - but I made it into my local CT newspaper, "The Connecticut Post". No, I am not a doll, I am the one in the pink shirt making my pendants. The article is on their website, but the pictures are not, so I scanned the first part. The next page has a photo of some of my work including a pendant I made with my son's photo - so he also made it into the paper ? If you look below at my Youtube video - that is the pendant that was in the paper. Please check out the article - it is very interesting :)

New Garden Floral Necklace

Just a sneak peak at a new necklace I will be listing sometime today. I designed the necklace around this gorgeous centerpiece. I used matching Swarovksi crystals and silver seed beads. I am really in love with this necklace - and I was very tempted to keep it all to myself - but I think I will let someone else enjoy it. It measures about 18" long. It is a great addition to any Spring outfit!!

Black & White for Spring ???

Yes - even though Spring is in the air - I am featuring a lot of Black and White items in my shop. We are actually supposed to get some snow here in CT tonight - can you believe it? Well, I can !

I remember when I was pregnant with my son (his due date was St. Patrick's Day), and we had a snow storm a few days before. I was really nervous that I was going to go into labor during the storm. Luckily I didn't and my son was born 3 days after my due date on March 20th.

I always have to mention my son in all my posts - I can't help it :)

Anyway - Black & White is always in style and you can wear it all year round with any outfit. So please take a look at my Etsy shop for more great Black & White

My Newest Idea

Don't you just love my son's artwork !! If you have run out of room on your fridge like we have - you need to think of other ways to display your child's art. I created this polymer clay pendant to show off this masterpiece. I can also make them into Magnets, Keychains or Pins. This is such a great gift idea for grandparents, Mother's Day, birthday and more. Your child will be thrilled when they see this - my son went nuts over it.

Also - if you are an artist yourself - I am more than happy to create one for you using your own Artwork. Please click on the link below for more information on ordering.
