The wonderful thing that becomes so addicting about polymer clay is how much you can do with it. You can stamp it, emboss it, layer it with designs, add colors, paint it. In this wonderful piece from Julie Sweeney you can see what happens when you use a bunch of those techniques to make tiles for a wonderful mosaic design that can be worn with just about anything. Julie is the secretary for the PCAGOE and often the first person you talk to when joining the group - and the first person to introduce you to the rest of the crowd in the forums. Her shop carries not only wonderful unique jewelry designs like the one shown, but also hair accessories, buttons, frames, and more! You can find her etsy shop HERE and follow her blog at http://juliespacedesign.blogspot.com.
Mother's day is fast approaching and wouldn't yours just love something unique like this wonderful bracelet?
This past weekend my good PCAGOE buddy Janice Sears featured me on her BLOG. It took me 3 screenshots to capture all her wonderful words and I'm truly honored beyond words. Last week was kind of a down week for me as I struggled with some personal issues relating to my kids and my ex husband that left me seriously wondering if I was doing the right thing. Janice's blog feature quite literally brought me to tears and got me off my pity throne and back to work and with wonderful results. I got brave enough to contact some bigger college bookstores and gift shops to show samples of my designs and got an immediate wonderful response and they want to carry my designs. Now comes the part where I have to go back into the business part of it all to work out a business plan, fill out paperwork, and set things up so all it copacetic with licensing, insurance, etc etc etc. Time to make my hobby a business, but I knew it was coming. =) Wish me luck! Thank you, Janice!
