Looking for some unique sculptures or clay items, whether they be for wearing or for around the house?
How about these?
This positively stunning work is from Stormy Designs. She is an artist who specializes in creating things with polymer clay. You name it, it’s in the shop. Jewelry? Done. Glass items covered in richly textured and colored clay? Done. Buttons and baubles? Done.
Everything in the store is hand-scuplted, and many items are one of a kind! You just can’t replicate all those textures and patterns exactly!
Stormy Designs also takes requests and custom orders. Yay for convenience and getting exactly what you want!
Polymer clay strikes again to make some cool jewelry:
These charms are the work of Erika Ashley at Charming. Erika is a Sacramento Craft Mafia member and jewelry maker.
Erika started off making earrings for her first shop, Etc. Earrings, but moved into other jewelry pieces made from polymer clay. Her work runs the gamut from monsters to fun animals to skulls to food. Every piece is meticulously crafted and has many of those little details (like sprinkles on donuts or fangs on the monsters) that make the pieces lively and fun.
She also makes other polymer clay sculptures, including this funny (and rather functional) toothpick holder:
One could argue that credit cards are just a bad thing that’s contributing to the financial ills of many people. (But then again, how else could some of us be able to buy such great indie stuff?!)
Anyway, at least one person is making sure credit cards do more than just burn a hole in your wallet:
This neat idea — yes, it is an American Express Blue card! — comes from Sweet Stella Designs, who has other fun accessories in her shop.
(She’s also got another credit-card related necklace in her shop … check it out here.)
In addition to some of the silver and beaded jewelry, there are plenty of food-related polymer clay accessories in the shop. All the clay accessories are true to their respective foodstuffs and just might make your friends hungry along the way. Take your pick from breakfast to snacks to candy.
Does even looking at food make you really hungry? Do you crave the food you see?
If one of the above situations describes you to a tee, you could be in trouble if you had some of this jewelry:
This awesome (and pretty realistic) food jewelry is from Robin’s Jewelry Box. Robin works magic with polymer clay, resin and a few molds. The results are cute … and mouth-watering.
And of course, there’s another bonus — these goodies are calorie-free! So if you’re all fooded out for the holidays, get your fill with this jewelry. Robin’s shop has all kinds of food for whatever hunger you’ve got. Just don’t become so hungry you eat the pendant.
Oh, and she’s got rings, too — this coffee ring is perfect for the java lover in your life … and there’s no caffeine to keep you up at weird hours.
Back when I was a kid, I discovered the joy of polymer clay. It was colorful, pretty, and fun. Back when I had an imagination, I made stuff for friends and my favorite teachers — pigs, a globe (a darn good one, as I recall), a piano (for my music teacher), and probably a few magnets here and there.
Polymer clay kicked the pants off Play-Doh.
Because Play-Doh couldn’t possibly have turned out something like this:
This is a candle holder from Niceclutter. All the tiles are painstakingly handmade from polymer clay and then attached to a candle holder to make this stunning piece. And since each tile is handmade, each piece is unique!
You will find magnets and mirrors and other embellished candle holders at Niceclutter. Every piece is eyecatching … so if you think your surroundings are getting a little boring, getting one of these pieces is an easy way to spice things up.
If you don’t have the patience to play with clay — and trust me, it takes tons of patience to turn out pieces like these! — meander over to Niceclutter and get something nice and colorful that won’t wind up being clutter.
