First Sale

Over weekend, I sold my first piece of jewelry through

I am in the process of listing all my jewelry on this site. Right now, some of my polymer clay items are both on and in my Etsy shop, but as my Etsy listings expire, I am not planning to re-list any jewelry there any more. I am doing quite well on Etsy, but (at least for me) my tutorials and beads sell much better than finished jewelry. This can be explained by a few factors, and one of them, I think, is that in order for my jewelry to be seen by the potential customers, I have to re-new my listings very often. If not re-newed, they drown under numerous more recent listings by other designers. The new site, as far as I understand, has a different algorithm for displaying its content, and I hope my jewelry will have a better chance to be found there.

Unbelievable Story
or How the Inspiration Works

A while ago I've got this picture through Etsy conversations.

This is a picture of a cake from somebody's blog, which was inspired (get this!) by my steampunk butterflies!

Too bad I do not have the link to the blog itself. If anybody knows where this picture came from, please let me know, OK?

New Tutorial
Polymer Clay and Fiber
Poppy Beads

The new polymer clay tutorial is available now.

My detailed step-by-step instructions show how to make a beautiful poppy cane, how to shape it into a poppy bead, and how to adorn it with fibers.

This project is simple enough to be enjoyed by a novice clayer, yet fun and innovative enough for those who already have some experience. As always, the skills learned following this tutorial can be used for many various projects in the future.

This tutorial is already listed both in my Etsy shop and on my web site.
