We're always making statements.
Whether it's the clothes you wear, the things you sell, the business cards you pass out, everything about you tells people something. It tells them about your priorities, your style, your worldview. When folks enter your Etsy shop, you have two seconds to grab their attention. You have at most ten more seconds to entice them to click on one of your items. Your banner is the first thing they will see upon entering your shop. It creates the atmosphere. A shop can go from drab to sensational just with that little strip of a graphic. Your banner will make or break your shop-- so make a statement and make that banner beautiful, telling, and classic, so people will want to return because of the atmosphere you have created!

The same thing applies to your clothing. When you walk out in public you are telling people something about yourself…

The same thing applies to your clothing. When you walk out in public you are telling people something about yourself. And something as small as a button, an intricate, delicate button, can transform an accessory or an outfit. At DollyMadison, I'm out to create unique, classy and adorable buttons of any shape, size and color that you can dream of. The buttons can pop just about anywhere! Papercrafts, purses, scarves, ipod cases, clothing, you name it, and I'll make you buttons for it in any hue or shade you choose. I can fabric match, I can 3D, I can duplicate. There's no limit to what you can do with these little gems of creativity. What are we waiting for?

In my shop I am aiming to sell diverse items that will help your statement to stand apart from the others. I specialize in custom orders, and I haven't had a dissatisfied customer yet! I love to make your shop, your buttons, your pet sculpture a work of art that will stand out from the ordinary and make a statement. I very rarely use 'plain ol' colors' like you would buy in the store--I spend hours kneading clay into just the right shade of spring green, pink or yellow.........

My newest venture is the pet sculpting business. So many people now own pets that are more a part of the family. Whether it's a dog, a cat, a hamster, platypus or chicken, I am ready and willing to undertake an intricate masterpiece that you will cherish for decades! I can glaze a product in gloss or matte (the latter is more attractive, in my opinion), or simply leave it in all of it's 'unfinished' beauty. Great as a gift for friends who have lost pets, or as a gift for yourself! I'm also branching out into a more local area, advertising in local pet spas and the like.

Contact me! I love hearing from people, whether it's suggestions, ideas, complaints, questions, or what-have-you. Contact me. It's easy.

-----------------About The Artist--------------------

Check my shop announcement for FB and Twitter links!

I am a seventeen year old artist who has had over six years' experience with Polymer clay. I also enjoy graphic design, commission graphite portraits, historical research, reading diverse genres, studying theology, written debates, classical violin, Irish and Old Time fiddle, singing incessantly, and of course our family's laying hens, all of which are named, and and are constantly carted about and spoiled generally by my younger siblings. {grin}

I'm an obsessionist. No, that sounds to eccentric. I'm Passionate. That's a better word. And I'm a bit eccentric about it, so maybe obsessionist isn't such a bad word after all. Aw, shucks! Just pick whichever word you think best fits. *grin* But when I have a favorite singing group (e.g. the Sons of the Pioneers) or singer (Ken "Shorty" Carson), you can be assured that I could tell you just about anything you wanted to know about them or their music, the genre they sang, and what have you. [I repent: I think that 'eccentric' fits very well, don't you? I've always been different than everyone else. In fact, my secret motto is "Odd: and proud of it"]. Actually, Ken Carson is my private biography project (google his name and "Bob Nolan" and you'll find a big page on him), so I am certainly slightly knowledgeable on him. ;)

I'm a collector. I collect songs (I can boast knowing more than two hundred songs so far!), buttons, aprons and books. Oh. And socks. But I don't try to collect socks, it just happens. Don't tell me you don't know what I'm talking about.

When I was a child (I do feel so dreadfully old sometimes!), I used to love to take a great, plump jar from my grandmother's shelf, which contained her button collection. I loved to sift my fingers through them, to examine them one at a time and marvel over the different and unique designs. So it was natural for me to start sculpting them after I began my polymer business. I just love detail, and I take great joy in making each button a masterpiece!

I opened up shop here on Etsy on May 24, 2010! *bows* thank you, thank you. No, no autographs.
