Announcement   Important Announcement-- Please Read!

I DO NOT use direct checkout, due to the many issues with the system; I use PayPal only. I apologize for the inconvenience if you are not on PayPal.

Due to the new tax laws going into effect on Jan 1 in the EU, I have been forced to suspend the use of the instant download feature for tutorials in order to avoid being trapped by the bureaucratic nightmare of record-keeping and tax collection for the 28 countries of the EU. (This also helps me keep my prices reasonable as in the past).

When you purchase a pdf. tutorial, it will be manually emailed to your PayPal email withing 24 hours of purchase. I deeply apologize for any inconvenience, but this is the only solution I have to this ill-thought-out move by the countries of the EU.
Yours,
Randee


Welcome to Polymer Clay from the Art of Texas!
Have fun browsing my work--I love making it. So much so that I have published a book on the subject--polymer clay faux techniques--entitled "Polymer Clay Gemstones, The Art of Deception" a 200+ page book crammed with 20 full scale tutorials and projects, now available on Amazon.

If you are looking for eclectic materials to further your polymer passion, please visit my other shop, https://www.etsy.com/shop/polymerartsupplies?, where I offer dichroic films,
the famous 'almost free draconyte tutorial' studio destash, and the odd 'I'm tired of this, so out it goes!' jewels that didn't quite make the cut.

I also love surprises--so every tutorial I ship has a little bonus attached--see the individual listings for descriptions!

Polymer clay is one of the most wonderful mediums I have ever encountered. Its chamelonic nature insures that the items you see are one of a kind, the only downside being that most can't be reproduced. When you purchase an artwork from me, you will not see it walking down the street towards you. Adornment has the sole function of showcasing its wearer--it should say something about you.

Not to put too fine a point on it, when items are sold, they are gone. I dislike repeating myself-so many designs, so little time...

(If something vanishes without explanation, it sold locally and was immediately unlisted. Sorry, that happens without warning!)

All tutorials (instant digital downloads) are English only--please see my shop policies for further information regarding refunds, access, etc.)

My work has been featured in Polymer Clay Daily, Art Museum shops, Galleries and National Magazines. Naturally, all of my designs and work are copyright-protected.

I am a proud member of The International Polymer Clay Guild, the Austin and Houston Polymer Clay Guilds, and PCAGOE--Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy.


A full gallery of my work can be viewed this link:

I restock as whimsy takes me, so please stop by!


All physical work is shipped insured, and all of my work is warranted.

I have been working with clay for about 2 years and decided this year i would put my money in tutorials. This one is a great deal, the steps are well laid out and had ideas I hadn't thought about before. Very reasonable priced and it's a fun method to do. Also appreciated I didn't have to buy more than what I already had purchased. Thanks!

My goal is to make every piece of work the best that I can; if it doesn't meet my standards of craftsmanship,it doesn't make it onto my site! All of my work is created in a smoke free environment.

The jewelry I create has the simple function of showcasing its wearer; I love making it, and I sincerely hope it brings you years of compliments.

  • Money Order
Payment
I accept all major credit cards through through Paypal. Payment is USD$ unless otherwise indicated. Payment in full for all orders is expected within 7 business days; unless other arrangements have been worked out, the order will be cancelled by me if payment has not been received by that time. Texas residents, ya'll please add 8% sales tax.

All digital downloads (tutorials) are in English only; If you purchase a tutorial and do not receive a confirmation email from Etsy with the link to your download, please check your spam folder; The confirmation email will go to the email address you used to purchase through payal--if you have several emails, please check them all.

Once downloaded, tutorials are NOT refundable under most circumstances, for obvious reasons--nor are the 'bonus' tutorials (mini-tutorials that accompany the main tutorial as a gift) refundable under any circumstances--if you do not wish to use your freebie, then you may decline to download it, but you will not be issued a refund for a free item--the published price is for the main tutorial only. (Forgive me for belaboring the point but I have actually had issues with a client over this very matter, incredible as it seems).
Shipping
All items are shipped USPS ground, first class. As of October 2010, everything is shipped insured, due to quirks with the postal system in Texas:(. If you desire confirmation or expedited delivery, please let me know.

International buyers, please contact me with the destination, so that I may quote you accurately on the shipping/customs costs. Most items will be shipped within 24-36 hours of payment clearance. All items will be very carefully packed, using recycled materials wherever possible.
Refunds and Exchanges
If, alas, an item arrives damaged, please convo me (that's the 'contact' button) at once! I will replace or refund at your discretion. I do understand that every now and again, something which looks wonderful in a shop is just..well...not so wonderful in the mirror; if this should prove the case, just notify me and return the item in its original condition within 20 days of receipt, and I will cheerfully refund your money, less shipping costs; I have no vested interest in unhappy clients; I prefer good Karma to bad.
