New additions to my Studio

First, just to let you know, I didn't do a Featured Smoosher post last week because that person was me for the week.  But, I did get two sales during my week as the Featured Smoosher, yay!  One was a set of non-clay earrings, and the other was both sets of my snowmen charms. Anyway. August's Polymer Clay Smoosher's challenge theme was "medieval", and here are the two pieces I came up with for it. This one is a pewter colored medieval cross.  Hand cut and shaped, with a red decorative marble…

New in the Studio - Space themed items

The Polymer Clay Smoosher's challenge theme this month was "Space".  I created two items and posted them late last night. First, a rather irritated alien lady.  She has three eyes, and glows in the dark: My second item, is a stylized Blue Moon pendant, which also glows in the dark: They're both made with glow in the dark polymer clay.  The alien lady's eye stalks are clay covered head pins, anchored into the clay.  For the Blue Moon pendant, I shaped it by hand and added the crater shapes…
