A new trinket dish design, and a design you will be finding on other products! I love this little brush pen sketch and I’ve always wanted to do something with it, so I had a stamp made and here is the first something. The dishes are 4″ white polymer clay but this time I’ve stamped […]

All the Pretty Cabochons

Like so many other items, I’ve been envisioning this style of cabochon pendants with my art and photos in them for quite a long time. I purchased a four pendant frame and cabochon sets with neck chains to try out so the only hard part was narrowing down the images to use, and, honestly, that […]

These little trinket dishes are 3.5″ in diameter and approximately 1/4″ to 1/2″ deep, made from natural white polymer clay. Each dish is formed and painted individually.

All the New Stuff

I don’t usually try to create six new things at once, but it turned out okay. You know how I love to tell stories about the things I make. And I actually enjoy working out one new thing at a time, visualizing the idea, collecting materials, testing it and making changes if necessary, then sharing […]

Hot Off the Worktable: “Tabbies Tiles”

I’ve had tiles in mind for a long time. I just like them for decoration, but they are also useful as coasters or a base to display something. I don’t have a kiln at the ready and don’t really want one, so I’ve been experimenting with air-dry clay to substitute. The finish has the feel […]

Hot Off the Worktable: “Heart Cat” Decorative Dishes

The “Heart Cat” decorative dish design is based on a favorite Valentine card, “You Are My Heart Cat”, which in turn is based on a photo I took in 2009 of one of their heart-shaped hugs. It’s another of the things I’m making for the one of the things I’m working on for the upcoming […]
