Announcement    Surprise!! Something extra in every summer order:)

Most items will ship within 3-5 business days of purchase; however, please allow longer for custom orders. Feel free to contact me if you are in a rush and need to upgrade to priority shipping and I will do my best to accomodate.

Please contact me with any further questions.

Many items I make involve polymer clay and are very durable and lightweight. I use Sculpey III, Premo, and Fimo brand clays in most of my creations. I love experimenting with these clays, metallic leaf, colors, textures, stamps, embossing powders, glitter, paper, acrylic paints, Liquid Sculpey, molds, found objects, micro-beads, etc.....I could go on forever if not for a limited budget. Many of the polymer clay items are sanded, buffed, and glazed with Sculpey Gloss though some are left with a matte finish.

Day of the Dead Sugar Skull beads are made with dyed howlite or magnesite and polymer clay eyes and roses.

In addition to playing with skulls and polymer clay, I enjoy decoupaging chiyogami paper, embossing, painting on wood objects, and experimenting with wire and beading techniques.

About

Inspiration is everywhere plus I am obsessed with polymer clay, sugar skulls, and jewelry.

This whole thing started back in 2005 when my sister taught me how to make necklaces. Actually, I wear earrings almost everyday, so when I discovered I could make my own... I went wild and started making way more than I could possibly wear or store. However, I soon became bored by the selection of beads available at local craft stores and bead shops. That is how I got started with polymer clay! The first beads I made were a product of simple mixing and marbling of different colored clays, then I moved on to adding inclusions (glitters, mica powders, foils, chalks, etc). Next I started playing with textures and creating custom molds from stamps, charms, cameos, and other found objects. I think it was in 2009 that I first discovered stone sugar skull beads and felt the need to give them eyes. I began by gluing metallic findings, gems, and spacer beads into the eye sockets of each bead before incorporating them into designs. I was always searching (and still am) for something more colorful and unique to add. Eventually, I found tiny polymer clay flower canes in a shop here on Etsy and started featuring them prominently in the eyes of many of my sugar skull creations. A search for "polymer clay flower beads" led me to the roses and flower beads that I use on top of the sugar skull beads in my Day of the Dead designs. The possibilities for combining colors are endless; however, my favorite colors to combine are turquoise and red. What I create each day depends on the type of mood I'm in. Sometimes I decide what colors I want to mix together after watching a particularly impressive sunset or a walk through the woods. Other times, I search through magazines and publications for floral-inspired color palettes. I recently got carried away with bright and brilliant colors after trip to Hawaii during which I was inspired by the tropical fish and coral. On the other hand, I can create endlessly with black and white polymer clay using marbling, mokume gane, and other cane techniques.
