Lynn ( has many beautiful rustic polymer clay pendants and other jewelry items in her shop. The most recent additions are these original necklaces made with faceted "icy" polymer clay crystals.

This is how the artist described them: Polymer clay is formed into irregularly faceted crystal forms. After faceting, the crystals are gently buffed to soften the edges for design and for comfort.

Interesting idea and lovely design, isn't it?

The wife and husband team behind insist on healing properties of the stones used in their swirly creations. They also say that the material they use is not polymer clay, but resin. I decided to show you their works today because I am sure that polymer artists can certainly find their inspiration in these beautiful works, and because there are definitely healing and soothing powers in them.

These ancient-looking polymer clay pendants are from

They were made by taking a mold of an antique Chinese chops. These chops are stamp used as a form of signature, so each chops is unique to begin with. Different color and sculpting variations add to the uniqueness of each pendant.

Look at these original polymer clay face pendants I found at

Somehow they remind me the elusive portraits by Amedeo Modigliani – a fine mixture of primitive, decorative, and graceful.

Linda Garbe of made these beautiful ruffled necklaces.

This is how she describes them: “Ruffles mean abundance. You need lots of fabric to make a ruffle. A ruffle adds dimension and interest to the garment. It captures the light in its folds. Ruffles aren’t just for fabric. These polymer clay ruffles do everything a fabric ruffle can do without the need for ironing or starch.”

One of my Christmas gifts happen to be the new book by Christi Friesen, Steampunkery.

Christi chosen a picture of my steampunk butterfly to be included in her book, so she sent me the contributor's copy.

Her new book is a lot of fun! Not only is it packed with lots of exciting projects, but it is also bursting with Christi's sense of humor. My 13-year old son is Christi's new fan. He snatched the book from me as soon as it arrived, and literally devoured it before I had a chance to even flip through it. I am sure Stempunkery will be as popular as Christi's other books!

Kate now has an additional shop, This one is dedicated to her amazing textured beads and buttons. Her denim buttons (below) are an absolute favorite of mine. I had a privilege of seeing in person a necklace made out of these buttons – casual, yet unforgettably elegant.

As a formulator of polymer clay products, Tony Aquino likes to explore the diverse possibilities of this medium. He is on the roster of instructors at Cabin Fever Clay Fest 2010, held next February in Laurel, MD, and will be teaching a class called "Channelling a Bracelet". Information about all workshops and instructors could be found at

On the demo night Tony will show a 50-slide presentation titled "I Did My Research" - a light-hearted look at the role that polymer clay has played through history. He will also demonstrate a surface treatment technique he calls "Flash Cure".

Here are a few examples of Tony's exploratory polymer clay creations.
