Welcome to Handmade n Clayed Creations, home of whimsical Polymer clay miniature animal figurines, and more!

ABOUT MY MINIATURE SCULPTURES AND FIGURINES:
My polymer clay miniatures animals are friendly little rotund critters with a glass marble core (in various sizes,) that can adorn your drab office desk or computer monitor.
I also occasionally make some kiln fired ceramic miniatures.
There are HUNDREDS of types and colors of animals immediately available in stock, from Aardvarks to Zebras and so many more.
The shiny marble interior can be viewed in a small hole in the bottom of each animal. The colors used are almost always polymer clay and NOT painted on. However, some spots, stripes, and shadings on animals may be painted or dusted on in acrylic paint or chalks, respectively. Inclusions of sands or fibers may be added to the clay to indicate rough or furry texture.
My stock animals are made in groups, which are all very similar within the group, but do vary slightly in size and detail.

SIZE:
Most of my animals are TINY - around or less than the size of a quarter, or a cubic inch. There are a few exceptions, and I try to indicate this in the descriptions. Most polymer clay animals have a glass marble core of varying sizes.
I CAN make custom orders of larger sizes, with cores of 1"- almost 3". This is discussed in my "Custom Order Info" section. I occasionally offer larger sizes as the mood strikes me.

"SOLD OUT"
If an item has "sold out" after the option, that means I need to make another series/group of them and restock. If you wish to purchase a "sold out" item, you can contact me to tell me you're interested; that animal will be put at the front of the queue to be created and restocked. You will be informed as soon as they are available!
A "sold out" item COULD be a OneOfAKind (OoaK) item which I will NOT be making for general sale again... however, I could make it as a CUSTOM order, if desired.
Many of the cats are OoaKs!
If you don't see an animal you want, let me know, I'm sure I can make it!
The animals DON'T have to be realistic.

BEYOND MINIATURE SCULPTURES:
Special animal requests can be made such as proportionate pets for doll houses, birthday candle holders, wedding cake toppers, lamp finials, fan pull chains, knobs, animal pens, jewelry (earrings, pins, pendants)...

NO LICENSED CHARACTERS, LOGOS, OR PROPERTIES WILL BE DEPICTED, unless an agreement has been legally obtained. Currently only one license is active, that for the copyrighted property of Wasp Eaters, from Airship Entertainment / Studio Foglio, LLC.

I do not depict inanimate objects, other than the occasional plant, and do not sculpt people, other than some fantastical ones!

I, Patricia Edmonds, am the sole artist of these miniatures. My son assists in some site maintenance, as well as packing and shipping.

These crafts are made and stored in a smoke-free home. I do however, have cats!

Returns and exchange details
Cancellation of an order before its shipment will simply be cancelled and any paid charges refunded.

If cancellation of an order occurs after shipment, (and upon its subsequent return)- the merchandise price ONLY will be credited upon receipt - not the original shipping charges. Return shipping charge is to be paid by purchaser.

Care will be taken in packing for shipping; however, breakage can still occur. Simple breakage along part ‘seam’ lines can easily fixed with a dab of gel superglue by the customer.
However, if purchaser wishes to have a replacement item of the same animal, they must attach a picture of the broken item in a conversation and a replacement will then be sent, asap, free of charge. If an incorrect item is sent through our mistake, the same procedure will be utilized. Broken or mistakenly sent items need not be returned as return postage is so high for such small ticket items. Our shop will bear the loss.
However, and again:
Returns due to changes of mind will have the only merchandise price refunded, and not the original shipping charges (once the item has been returned with return shipping paid for by the customer.)
Payment
Missouri residents will be subject to a 7.95% sales tax. Other sales taxes may apply depending on interstate laws.
Shipping
Unless otherwise instructed, (with increased shipping costs paid by the customer) all items will be shipped USPS. Regular S&H for miniatures is $3.50 for the first, and $.50 for each additional animal. Several animals may be shipped within the same box, but individual boxes are provided for each animal in a multiple mini purchase.

Once receipt of payment has been made:

Items pictured in the shop have been put aside and are immediately available and will be shipped within 3-5 business days. We check for sales at least once a day. We usually ship out twice a week - more often closer to the holidays. If you need an item mailed within a certain time period, please add a note. Generally, once we submit a package to USPS, it arrives at its destination in 2-3 days. However, for unknown reasons, shipping times to the East coast seem to take 2 days longer than the rest of the country. (We are located in the center of the country - in Missouri.)

The COMPLETION TIME OF CUSTOM ORDERS of animal miniatures and other SMALL items (doll house pets, birthday candle holders: They will be SCULPTED within ONE WEEK, then mailed within 1-3 days after sale has been completed.

The COMPLETION TIME of intricate, and/or larger items, such as wedding cake toppers, or large quantities of miniatures will be unique to each order and will have to be discussed in an ongoing conversation.

All these times are generously estimated and may be completed sooner!
Additional policies and FAQs
I provide the option of custom orders, and terms and specifications can be discussed on a per-case basis.

Miniatures and other Polymer Clay products here are not meant for small children predisposed to putting inappropriate things in their mouths. They are also not recommended for rough play; they are decorative figurines, not toys.
