Hand-Sculptured Polymer Clay Miniature Figurines inspired by Nature, Fantasy, and Native Arts

I have been making a variety of jewelry and small sculptures from polymer clay since 2004, mostly for my own and my family's pleasure. I opened my Etsy shop in 2008, but didn't yet have pieces ready to sell.

In 2012, I started sculpting small figures of birds, animals and fantasy creatures, such as phoenixes and sea serpents, from polymer clay. I began working in a much smaller scale than I had before. I loved this small work, and, and the pieces began to flow freely from my hands. Many of the smallest sculptures I made into charms and earrings, but my personal favorites are the figurines.

I have several different finishes that I use. The most common line I call Gildybeasts, named from the soft metallic-looking finish that comes from applying and hand buffing mica powders before baking. Some of these sculptures have a blown-glass look, as in old fashioned Christmas ornaments, others look more metallic.

Another of my favorites I call Stone-Look Sculpture, inspired by Inuit carvings, Native American stone fetishes, and Japanese Netsuke carvings.

Recently, I decided to shift the focus of Touchstone Creations to figurines, as these have always been my favorites. I may sneak a few ornaments or brooches in, but mostly the shop will feature my hand-sculpted figurines.
