Creating with Polymer Clay

I've been a crafter and maker of things forever. I've tried just about every craft and if I haven't tried it, I want to! I started working with polymer clay about 20 years ago and that seems to be the medium is sticking with me.

I started my Etsy shop in 2007. After doing some craft sales I was looking for a way to sell my work online and Etsy was a great fit.

In the beginning I was making candle holders and christmas ornaments.
This soon evolved into:
* clay roses: made one petal at a time with no molds used
* boxes: covered in clay and embellished with stamps and pigments
* braille: jewelry, accessories & boxes. Each dot placed one at a time to make readable braille words and phrases

My most recent addition (or addiction!) is liquid polymer clay. I mix the colors myself and swirl them together in seemingly endless ways.

I'm sure I will continue to find new and fun ways to make wonderful items with polymer clay. I can't wait to share them with you!
